Tre Shuts Down for the Long Winter

Today marks the beginning of the indoor dining shutdown announced by Governor Cuomo last week. The fallout from this COVID-19 related action will likely wreak further havoc on the struggling nightlife industry.

For example, local Italian restaurant, Tre, is hibernating for the long winter. Rather than maintain its sidewalk eatery on Ludlow Street at high cost for little benefit to the bottom line.

“It was a really tough decision – if you only have two tables outside, the cost is too high to allow the restaurant to survive,” ownership told us in an email.

Last time Tre temporarily closed – just at the outset of the pandemic – a serial burglar gained access and stole liquor and cash from the premises.

Having withstood a decade of construction on the Hotel Indigo, the Napoletani street food eatery at 173 Ludlow is somewhat of a survivor in these parts. Coronavirus is the true test for the locals spot, which opened in November 2007.
