Les Enfants Terribles would like to set the record straight regarding whispers of closure and upscale concept change.  The story we printed was mostly true. While the popular neighborhood hangout at 37 Canal Street won’t actually be closing at the end of August as earlier reported, there is still a major menu overhaul in the works. Talk of a name-change is as-yet unconfirmed. The name will remain as is.

From the owners:

We have come across a couple of online postings stating that Les Enfants Terribles is closing in August for renovation to build a new concept. We would like the opportunity to correct this and to tell our loyal customers and your readers that this is not the case. We will be open in August and better than ever before with a new chef, new menu and a new cocktail menu on the works. We love our regulars and the neighborhood and we have recently done some renovation and we will continue to do so to make the place more pleasant for our customers.
