Fulton, Crescent Lounge, and More Bite the Dust

1) Upper East Side: Fulton restaurant, which the Citarella team opened in 2008, has shuttered. A farewell note on the restaurant's site explains: "In an effort to focus all of our talent and resources on the continued evolution of Citarella, we have opted to close Fulton." [EaterWire]

2) East Village: Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery on 3rd Avenue has officially shuttered. A rep told Eater earlier this summer that the shutter was temporary, but the place was gutted recently, according to EV Grieve. Across town, another location is still under construction. [EV Grieve]

3) Astoria: Neighborhood favorite, the Crescent Lounge closed this week after nearly 13 years in business. Owner John Karanikas, who started working as a bartender at the bar, told DNAinfo that it was simply time for the "next chapter." No word yet on who the new tenants are. [DNAinfo]


4) Midtown East: Serge Bistro on 2nd Avenue at 58th Street was seized by the City Marshall earlier this week, and returned to the landlord, presumably for unpaid rent. The restaurant opened in October 2012. [EaterWire]


5) Upper East Side: Mexican restaurant Aprovencho has closed and been seized by the city marshall. [Eaterwire]

6) Astoria: An outpost of Burger Bistro, a chain known for creating a donut burger, closed recently after only eight months in business. The three other locations in the city are still open. [Eaterwire]
