Teary Shutter Signage: Greenwich Village Landmark Le Figaro Cafe

New, 11 comments

Greenwich Village: Jeremiah's Vanishing reported earlier today that Greenwich Village staple Le Figaro has closed, and the Eater spot check confirms. The place has already been emptied, and the teary shutter signage is posted on the door. Jeremiah chimes in with some intel and color from a local: "'I have it on very good authority [a resident in the building] that the building's owners have leased the back space (on MacDougal) to a bank (of course) and they're looking for a new restaurant in front.' This will be the second time in history Figaro has shuttered (1969-1975)."
