The Shutter Notice: The Decline and Fall of The Tasting Room

New, 28 comments

Nolita: When the well loved East Village hole in the wall, The Tasting Room, expanded into bigger digs in Nolita a year and a half ago, its fans in both neighborhoods anxiously awaited a bigger kitchen and dining room. Yet things quickly went downhill, starting with a tepid one star review from the Brunz, who called the space ugly, the service, terrible. More recently, we've heard neighborhood reports that the place wasn't as busy as it should have been. In April, we received an announcement for "Eating Their Words," a dinner theater event at the restaurant "wedding a seasoned chef with prominent playwrights for an integrated evening of new cuisine and new theater." Not a good sign. And now this. Renovating. No explanation, and no sign of when they'll reopen. Everyone back to the barracks on East 1st Street. Stay tuned for an official shutter.
