Welcome back to the Friday Shutter. Know of any other restaurant that has met its demise? Let us know.

2010_01_settepani.jpg1) Greenpoint: A future shutter. Greenpoint Coffee House will close on April 1. From the tipline: "The barista just told me that something else will go in there, a project of the landlord's (probs a bar). The place has been open since, 2003, the food has never been great, but people in the neighborhood certainly loved it as a catch-all for coffee/lunch dates/after work drinks, etc. They were featured in that Episode of Bored to Death."

2) Columbia Street Waterfront District: Lost City reports that Red Tapas Bar, a small, out of the way restaurant on Columbia and Summit, has closed after just a couple of years in business. [Lost City]
