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

2011_totonnos1.jpg1) Union Square: Zagat notices that neighborhood dive Bar 119 has shuttered. They tacked a sloppy note to the door explaining the situation. [Zagat]

2) Prospect Heights: Fork in the Road reports that Alan Harding's food truck at the bar Hot Bird is not returning from its winter break. Management is looking for a new vendor to fill the slot. [FitR]

3) Bay Ridge: Brooklyn Paper learns that red sauce staple Chianti’s is officially closed for good. Apparently, the landlord recently raised the rent, and they were a few months behind. [Brooklyn Paper]

4) Gramercy: A tipster sends word that Gastropub/hip-hop club Truffle is dunzo. People were seen taking out the kitchen equipment, and the rumor is that the bills weren't being paid. In case you were wondering, DJ Snap 's Saturday night party has moved to 24th street. [The Shutter]

5) Midtown: Midtown Lunch reports that Italian favorite Nino's had a serious grease fire. Thankfully nobody was hurt, but they're closed until further notice. [Midtown Lunch]

6) UES and Kip's Bay: Slice brings word that both the 26th St. and 86th St. locations of Totonno's have closed. The owners cite a rent increase as the reason for shuttering the UES shop, but it will reopen as another pizzeria by a father and son team. That will be called Toscano's. The Coney Island location is still open for business. [Slice]
