There has been some speculation recently about the fate of Pastis, which is scheduled to close this January so that the owners of the building can begin renovations on the space. Keith McNally insists that this will not be the restaurant's final bow. The legendary restaurateur tells Eater:
At the beginning of January Pastis will be closing temporarily so that our landlord can proceed with his renovation and expansion of the building. I anticipate the construction will take a year. My plan is to reopen Pastis as soon as construction is finished. Hopefully, in January 2015.You have three months to visit Pastis before it goes on vacation.
