The Shutter: Grand 275, Nicola Paone, and Dosa Hut

New, 1 comment

It's been a strange week in shutters. We had both the long planned closure of Cafe Grey and the last minute sale of Bette. Then there was of course the mysterious shutter/non shutter over at Savarona. As usual there are still a few stragglers left:

2008_06_grand275.jpg1) Clinton Hill: Clinton Hill Blog reports on the shuttering of a beloved bar: "I have received word from TWO different sources that Grand 275 (located at 275 Grands, obvs) is closing. Fear not — it doesn’t seem to be an issue with poor business or rent increases, but more that the owners are ready to do something new (hopefully in the same space?)." [ClintonHillBlog]

2) Murray Hill: Crain's brings the news that Murray Hill old timer Nicola Paone will close tomorrow: "Nicola Paone, the favorite Italian restaurant of a long line of mayors including Rudy Giuliani, celebrated its 50th anniversary in April. This Saturday evening, the Murray Hill stalwart—a victim of old age—will serve its last mealss..Mr. Auriana says he will either sell the building at 207 E. 34 St....or lease it to another restaurant." [Crain's]

3) Gramercy: Kosher-NY has some shuttering news from Lexington Ave: "Saravana Bhavan Dosa Hut, which was formerly located at 102 Lexington Avenue, between East 27th Street & East 28th Street, is now closed. It seems as though a non-kosher restaurant, Tamil, will be opening it its place." [Kosher-NY]
