Cocktail Den Dove Parlour Shuttering This Month; Fasta Didn't Even Last Two Months

Plus, 25-year-old UWS Scaletta may be done soon.


1) GREENWICH VILLAGE — Last time Eater checked, underground cocktail den Dove Parlour was being forced out of its space in 2016 because of a rent hike. But the owners send word that the closure will actually be much sooner than that, on June 28. Head to the bar on that Sunday for a farewell party. [EaterWire]

2) EAST VILLAGE — Things are not looking good for casual spaghetti joint Fasta. EV Grieve reports that restaurant has not been open since last Wednesday and that phone calls go unanswered. The restaurant just opened on April 23, so even by New York standards, that's a pretty quick demise. It's been rumored that rather than closing the space, the owners have plans to change the concept to an all chicken restaurant. [EV Grieve]

3) UPPER WEST SIDE —  The space that currently houses Italian restaurant Scaletta is now on the market. The location won't be available until March 2016, so if the 25-year-old restaurant is going to close, the shutter is not imminent. [West Side Rag]

4) LOWER EAST SIDE — Stanton Street Kitchen, has been closed for renovations for a suspiciously long time. Bowery Boogie notes that social media accounts for the restaurant aren't revealing much and that emails to the restaurant have gone unanswered. It remains to be seen whether this shutter will be a permanent one. [BB]

5) EAST VILLAGE — The space that once housed Salt & Pepper, a cut-rate Indian restaurant went on the market yesterday. It's marketing itself as a "pop-up space." No word yet on what business will take over. [EV Grieve]
