Octavia's Porch, the 'global Jewish' restaurant from Top Chef alum Nikki Cascone recently closed after just six months in business. The restaurant was the chef's return to the restaurant world after closing her doomed Soho restaurant 24 Prince at this time last year.
The conceit was already dubious ("the city's first culturally Jewish restaurant with a sophisticated approach to feature global tastes and flavors"), and cut rate discounts just two months in did not bode well. Also, the space has had four operators in as many years. Still it's very sad to see something close after such a short stint. Hopefully, Cascone can fall back on her clothing line.
