Is this arrivederci for Apizz on Eldridge Street?
A concerned Boogie reader writes to say that the long-running Tuscan Italian spot was uncharacteristically closed this past Sunday evening. No announcement or anything.
The rustic, window-less restaurant specializes in dinner service Tuesdays through Sundays, and is known as one of the more difficult tables to get. Yet, the last couple nights, Apizz has been shuttered; security gates locked; red neon dark. No one picks up the phone during business hours (or otherwise) and social media is mum.
Peasant veteran John LaFemina opened Apizz at 217 Eldridge Street in 2003. Two years later, he scored dual success with the introduction of The Orchard two blocks east. That establishment shuttered in June 2011.
