TIMES SQUARE — Montenapo, the Italian restaurant in the New York Times building, has closed. This is the second time the restaurant has shuttered in the last 20 months. The last owner notes: “We tried our best to make this property work. I don't think there is anyone to blame outside the economy.” The space has been returned to the landlord. [Crain's]
