New, 1 comment

1) Bushwick: Year-old Russian-influenced restaurant Mazelle closed with a party over the weekend. Bushwick Daily reports that the two owners of nearby Momo Sushi Shack have already taken over the lease, and are teaming up with Kip Michael, a former Roberta's manager, to open a sandwich shop called HiHello. The new place will open some time in October or November. [BD]

2) Forest Hills: Just Like Mother's, a well-liked traditional Polish restaurant in Queens closed last week. According to the Forest Hills Patch, the owners were forced to shutter the business after being unable to come to an agreement with the landlord. [FHP]

3) Lower East Side: After a year and a half in business, Cowboy Pizza has closed. The owner, Lisa Fischoff, also owns Pushcart Coffee, which will soon open its third location in Chelsea. She tells The Lo-Down that the pizza place "wasn't bringing in enough business to be sustainable," but that its closure won't have any affect on the coffee shops. [TLD]

4) East Village: Zucco: Le French Diner has been shuttered for a few weeks now, reports Bowery Boogie. Many have wondered how the place would fare since Zucco himself, the restaurant's eccentric owner, passed away three years ago. Now the current owner is looking to sell Zucco, and focus instead on a pizza joint he also owns in Brooklyn. [BB]

5) Midtown: One of the two New York outposts of Sushi Shop, the French chain that serves things like foie gras maki and has takeout boxes designed by Lenny Kravitz, closed recently. But an employee tells Grub Street that the second location on West 52nd Street remains open as usual. [GS]
