UWS Outpost of Popular Druze Restaurant Gazala's Place Slips Quietly Into the Night

Despite a loyal following, the restaurant has gone dark.

The Upper West Side outpost of Druze restaurant Gazala's closed a couple of weeks ago, according to the West Side Rag. But, it's unclear why. The original location in Hell's Kitchen, known for its thin pita and curling borekas has a loyal following that includes Eater's Robert Sietsema. The building apparently went condo recently, but that likely isn't the culprit. There are no updates on the restaurant's website or long out of date social media accounts, and the phone line hasn't been disconnected yet, so perhaps the shutter isn't a permanent one. Stay tuned.

Check out Sietsema at Gazala's Place watching chef Gazala Halabi making her signature thin pita and kofta:
