We've reported on the closings of Upper East Side favorite Annie's and West Village favorite Sapore in the past two weeks. Besides the neighborhood outcry over the shutterings—sample email to the Eater inbox regarding Annie's: "Closing after 15 years, nooooo!"—both restaurants shared the impulse to post teary goodbye signs to their customers. Tissue, please.
Goodbye sign outside Annie's.
Goodbye sign outside Sapore.
