1) Prospect Heights: Zagat reports that 25-year old eatery Garden Cafe has shuttered. "The surprise closing was confirmed by the restaurant's neighbor, Amorina, who noted that prospective new tenants had already been seen visiting the space." [Zagat]

2) Midtown: @MetromixNewYork tweets that Beard Papa's inside the Cafe Zaiya in midtown has been taken out. [Twitter/@MetromixNewYork]

3) Midtown: Some shutter/opening news from Midtown Lunch: "I think I speak for everyone when I say Noooooooooooooooooo! The rumor is true, Olympic Pita (on 38th btw 5+6th) has become Baraca. I’m not going to panic just yet? from the look of the inside I’m guessing the lunchtime food will be exactly the same. But it’s just sad that my favorite place for falafel in Midtown thinks they have to resort to this ridiculousness to survive in the current economic climate." [Midtown Lunch]

4) Park Slope: OTBKB reports that Tempo is closing: "I am sad to report that Tempo, an extremely attractive Fifth Avenue Zagat-rated restaurant with excellent food, is closing." [OTBKB]
