Family Recipe on Eldridge St. is closing

Family Recipe was a critics’ favorite ever since opening at 231 Eldridge Street nearly three years ago. But apparently the Japanese cafe wasn’t appreciated enough, and is now throwing in the towel. Chef-owner Akiko Turnauer took to Twitter this past weekend to announce next Sunday as the last day of service.

The tweet message to Family Recipie faithful was, “Thank you so much for all your support nearly 3 years. we have to inform that we are closing for good on 6/22 Sunday.” To celebrate the bittersweet occasion, Family Recipe is offering a 50% discount on all bottles of wine until the last night of business.

The fresh departure on upper Eldridge has some residents saddened and concerned about the tenuous equilibrium on the block. And what role the eventual replacement will play. Especially since this is already an active spit of land for nightlife (Sapphire, Bob Bar).
