Peter Hoffman Confirms that East Village Mainstay Back Forty Has Closed Amid 'Difficult Landscape'

After seven years, the farm-to-table restaurant on Avenue B is done.


Following the rumor yesterday that Back Forty would close, chef and owner Peter Hoffman now confirms that Sunday was indeed the restaurant's last day in business on Avenue B. He says "a difficult landscape and lease uncertainty" led to the decision to shutter the farm-to-table neighborhood mainstay, after seven years in business.

As expected, Back Forty's younger sister, Back Forty West, remains open in Soho, in the space that was once home to Hoffman's dearly-departed pioneer of Greenmarket cooking, Savoy.
