A tipster writes in with word that the The Highliner in Chelsea appeared shuttered and, lo and behold, it is in fact dunzo. The website is down, the last Yelp review was in early November, and a call to the restaurant confirms it's closed. Its last day was Sunday.

The Highliner opened last May (after some delays) when the company behind Union Square's Coffee Shop took over the historic Empire Diner space. No word on what, if anything, will take that over the diner next.
