Cuban Eatery ‘Agozar’ Ends its 15-Year Run this Week

Posted on: November 28th, 2017 at 5:09 am by

It was only a couple weeks ago when we shot a photo of Agozar. That familiar feeling came over us – sensing that a place of this character couldn’t last much longer on Bowery 2.0. Sure enough, word came down the pike this week that the cuban restaurant will close forever on Thursday after fifteen years at the northwest corner of Bleecker Street.

The brother-sister ownership of Gerardo Perez and Diana Mastrodimos together took to Facebook last week to break the news:

After 15 years of serving the East Village and the Bowery, we would like to regretfully inform everyone that we will be closing on December 1st. Our last day of service will be November 30th. It has been a pleasure serving the community for over a decade. Our family would like to thank our hardworking dedicated staff, our customers, and regulars for your loyalty and patronage throughout the years. THANK YOU! We hope to see you soon!

So, what’s on tap next, now that a valuable corner is ready for the plucking…?
