EaterWire Shutter Edition: Flood Temporarily Closes Aureole, Goblin Market & Luke and Leroy Are Finished

UPPER EAST SIDE—Straight from a press release sent to our inbox by the Charlie Palmer Group: "Aureole, Chef Charlie Palmerx's flagship property, is currently closed due to flooding caused by a broken water pipe suffered on Monday while the restaurant was closed for the Labor Day holiday. Aureole is scheduled to reopen on Monday, September 17, 2007." At this time, foul play by our friends from the DOH is not suspected. [EaterWire Inbox]

SOHO—A month after chef/owner Richard Pelz left to "pursue other projects," effectively spelling the end of Goblin Market as we have known and not loved it, a special Eater correspondent emails the coup de grace: "Here's a little tidbit for you -- Goblin Market has closed. Found out in a roundabout manner as Flo Fab announced its forthcoming replacement (Shorty's Bar & Grill) in today's fall preview." [EaterWire Inbox]

WEST VILLAGE—More carnage. Intel's Daniel Mauer reports that Seventh Avenue South club (and famed MisShapes haunt) Luke and Leroy is doneski. Per word from the former owner, "It has been sold to a guy who I introduced to her and he is renovating it and renaming or something." [Daily Intel]
