Xunta, I Vandali, Free Foods Bite the Dust

New, 6 comments

1) East Village: Xunta, the cozy Spanish tapas place on 1st Ave. near 11th Street is donski. See the sad scraping of the painted signage above. For an excellent tribute to the place, which has been around for almost two decades, see Chris Mohney's account here. [ShutterWire]

2) Upper East Side: A tipster reports that I Vandali the somewhat gimmicky (customers were invited to write on the walls, like vandals, get it?) one and a half year-old restaurant on 1st Ave. between 82nd and 83rd has closed: "Too bad, I had been there a few times and enjoyed it. The place was never really busy, however heard recently there was new ownership." [ShutterWire]

3) Midtown: Midtown Lunch reports that the 52nd St. location of Free Foods has shuttered. [ML]
