New, 2 comments

Welcome to the Friday shutter. Know of any other restaurant that has served its last? Let us know.

2009_09_rocknsake.jpgChelsea: A tipster reports that the long anticipated and at one point promising one year-old New Orleans import Rock-n-Sake on 25th Street has closed ("mail on the floor and lots of flies in the window"). And its Yelp page confirms...and has this ode: "For all those happy hours you stood by me/ For all the truth that you made me see (with the aid of nicely priced hot sake)/ For all the joy (and buzzed times) you brought to my life/ For all the wrong that you made right/I'll be forever thankful, Rock-n-Sake."

FiDi: A reader reports that longtime William St. Japanese restaurant Kokura shuttered late this week. A "for rent" signs now decorates its facade. [ShutterWire]

Hell's Kitchen: A number of tipsters have written in to report that Metro Marche in the Port Authority Bus Terminal has closed. It's being taken over by Heartland Brewery, according to the former manager. "It had excellent food at a very good price, I will miss it." [ShutterWire]
