In yet another sign of transition along Clinton Street, the three-year-old Indian restaurant near East Houston just closed down. Khushboo, as it’s called, called it quits earlier this week.

News of its closure follows other high-profile shutters including Tapeo29 and Thelma (which is actually a rebranding).

The outgoing Khushboo first opened at 6 Clinton Street in August 2014. Its chef was Razan Kunwar, a vet from the Masala Wala just a few blocks away. Two years later, new ownership came a-knockin’ but the name remained intact.

Now, just water under the bridge.
