Curtains indeed for Apizz on Eldridge Street.
Apizz ended business for good within the last couple weeks. Much like its presence on the block, the subtle Tuscan restaurant was quiet in its closure. In no time, the phone went dead, website removed, and Open Table reservations terminated.
And so, today comes the more official confirmation of its demise. In the form of a real estate listing courtesy of Misrahi Realty. The 1,200 square-foot space is now on the market for a $7,500 in monthly rent. Immediate possession is sought.
Apizz is also asking $240K in key money to unload the business and its fixtures.
Peasant veteran John LaFemina opened the rustic, windowless Apizz at 217 Eldridge Street with Xerxes Novoa in 2003, specializing in dinner service Tuesdays through Sundays. Two years later, he scored dual success with the introduction of The Orchard two blocks east. That establishment shuttered in June 2011.
