EaterWire: Mason A Month From Opening Tailor & More!

SOHO—For everyone following the progress of Tailor, Sam Mason's much-delayed Soho restaurant, we've got a juicy little tidbit for you. From a reliable source, we hear that Tailor is "4 weeks out." We're sure hoping that Mason can live up to all the hype he's created—bring on the sweet and savory small plates. [EaterWire]

UPPER WEST SIDE—A dose of DOH news, from a tipster: "I passed by the Hale & Hearty at 81st and Bway today and saw the classic yellow DOH closure signs. No explanation from the company or notice as to when they will reopen. Another one bites the dust." Hopefully another nearby eatery can fill the gaping void. [EaterWire Inbox]

EAST VILLAGE—Alphabet City could be losing bargain Italian eatery Max. The disconcerting possibility, from a reader, "heard a rumor that neighborhood italian institution Max (on Avenue B) is closing/moving...their office/wine storage space on the 2nd floor of 51 Avenue B (right above the restaurant) was vacated yesterday. Completely cleared out. Heard the landlord is a nightmare and they’re searching for a new home...big blow to the neighborhood." [EaterWire Inbox]

MIDTOWN WEST—Continuing with rumored closures, a tipster alerts us to the impending shuttering of Collins Bar at 735 Eighth Avenue and 46th Street. "just wanted to drop a note to let you know I just heard that the Collins bar, one of the only good bars in the times square district (on 46th and 8th) is closing in around 2 months. Apparently the building has been sold and they are not going to renew the lease." [EaterWire Inbox]
