APL Folds; The Orchard House Takes Its Place
APL was pretty much doomed from the start. Drama involving onetime Paloma chef Camille Beccera wasn’t exactly the perfect first foot on which to start a restaurant business. Nevertheless, the ill-conceived and confusingly-themed eatery at 146 Orchard Street powered through the negativity and opened last May. Five months later, it’s now finished. Another feather in the Quickie Closures hat.
Grub St reported yesterday afternoon that the space will soon birth a newer restaurant called The Orchard House. It’ll pretty much remain the same, from decor to the New American style of cuisine.
