After 16 Years in Little Italy, ‘Bread’ is Again Homeless

Posted on: May 16th, 2017 at 5:18 am by

Bread is again without a home. The sixteen-year-old Little Italy-based restaurant shuttered last week without announcement. Several brunch seekers who were left in the lurch relayed that it had been closed since at least Wednesday.

Onsite, meanwhile, two computer printouts taped to the front doors note only that Bread is “closed.” No further explanation is given; we have an email out to management to learn more.

The following message is on the Nolitan’s website – “The Hotel restaurant as well as in room dining services are temporarily unavailable. Please contact the hotel if you have any questions. Apologies for the inconvenience.”

Thus concludes the slender one-year tenure of Bread inside the cursed Nolitan Hotel. The eatery relocated to 40 Kenmare Street back in April 2016, a refugee from its longtime headquarters at 20 Spring. Changing locations is never easy … on customers or stores themselves. The closure follows a trend of well-established businesses failing after being forced into moving elsewhere.
