After two-and-a-half years on the Lower East Side, one-Michelin-starred restaurant Rebelle will close after dinner service on Saturday, November 18, a hostess confirms. The industrial restaurant on Bowery was a particular favorite for wine lovers and those in the hospitality industry, offering a vast, often obscure, and generally well-priced wine list.

Staffers only learned of the closure yesterday when instructed to start canceling reservations after Saturday. Eater has reached out to the restaurant ownership for more information.

Rebelle was the more casual follow-up to also now-shuttered sister restaurant next door, Pearl & Ash. Founder Branden McRill, wine director Patrick Cappiello, and chef Daniel Eddy started it as a “French restaurant run by American kids.” The 1,500-bottle-deep wine list quickly attracted wine snobs and industry professionals, and Times critic Pete Wells gave the restaurant two stars shortly after the restaurant opened, though he didn’t love the space.
