Emma Hearst and Sarah Krathen will shutter Sorella, their six year-old Italian spot, after service this Saturday. The pair offer little explanation for the closure, but tell the Lo-Down: "[A]ll good things must come to an end. We opened quietly in December 2008 as best friends, and are closing quietly this weekend, still as best friends. There's no drama, so we urge you to come say goodbye." Hearst (who is in fact the great granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst) stepped away from kitchen in 2012, but has still been involved in running the restaurant while Molly Nickerson took the helm in the kitchen.
In the final days, Krathen and Hearst plan to bring back some of Sorella's old classics for fans (of which there are still quite a few). They also hint, "We're still young, so we may return." Meanwhile Stellina, their adjacent gelateria next door, has already closed.
