Black Tree LES to Close Temporarily for Concept Revamp

The Orchard Street restaurant is taking an extended break

Lower East Side farm-to-table favorite Black Tree will close its doors temporarily at the end of the month. Black Tree — the four-year-old restaurant that started as a sandwich pop-up — will serve old and new favorites from its menu before it closes for a new concept on August 31. Co-owner and chef Sandy Dee Hall says in a statement: "We know we’re going to break some hearts by not serving our popular rotating farm-to-table dishes after this month, but we’re going to reopen with a new and exciting concept that everyone will love just as much!"

While there’s no word yet on what exactly the new concept will be, fans of Hall’s rotating whole-animal menu can still visit Black Tree’s Brooklyn outpost on Metropolitan Avenue. Currently, the team is set on reopening Black Tree LES on December 31.
