Adding to Muniak's Troubles, City Shutters Centro Vinoteca

New, 8 comments

All is not well in the world of restaurateur Sasha Muniak. First his Top chef alum Leah Cohen quit her job as exec chef of Centro Vinoteca last month. Then he put his buildings that house Gusto and the one-time Gusto expansion space on the market, pimping the ground floor spaces as perfect for retail. And today word comes that the city has shuttered Centro Vinoteca for "operating illegally." It could be that they just forgot to renew a permit or some such, but that's unlikely for such an experienced operator. This looks more like a system-wide issue. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available—either regarding a reopening or a permanent shutter—and please send any intel this way.
