As anticipated, father and son team Alan and Michael Stillman have now closed both Park Avenue Winter and Hurricane Steak + Sushi (FKA The Hurricane Club). The latter rebranded itself over the summer to include fewer pu-pu platters and more steak and sushi, but apparently to no avail. It closed after service on December 28, and the Stillmans, who also own Quality Meats, Quality Italian, and others, plan to reopen it as an entirely new restaurant by spring.
Meanwhile Park Avenue, the restaurant with the seasonally changing dining room, menu, and name, was going along just fine until the Stillmans lost the lease back in June. That lease expired at the end of 2013, and now the Stillmans are looking for a new place to house Park Avenue Winter (and Spring, Summer, and Autumn). A rumor was floating around that Park Avenue might actually take over the Hurricane space, but that turns out to be unfounded. A representative for Fourth Wall Restaurants says that the group is "in talks with a couple locations," but hasn't finalized anything yet. The new concept for the Hurricane space remains under wraps for now.
