Next week marks a new era of Eater. So all this week, we're celebrating Eater 1.0 by republishing some favorite pieces from the vault. Ahead: the 2005 shutter of a little place by the name of Ye Waverly Inn. Read the saga that followed this post here, here, here, here, here, and most of all here, here, here, here, here, here.
Have a favorite post from, oh, before 2009? Hit us up.
Breaking news from the West Village:
Looks like Ye Waverly Inn has closed and the landlord is looking for a new tenant. Was cozy in there (fireplaces, low ceilings, Revolutionary charm) but the food wasn't anything to write home about. Signs on the windows have room layouts, what the owners are asking for monthly rent, etc.Indeed, our own site inspection confirms the tip. Posted layouts highlight an intact bar, dining room, and kitchen. Plus, a peek in the window on the Waverly side of the space reveals tables still set, making all the more clear that the land lord intends to keep the space a restaurant. For those curious about the rental terms, we're sure if there's anything worth knowing, our bro is on it.
