Meant to post this last month and it got completely lost in the shuffle. Popular Australian gastropub The Sunburnt Calf has shuttered (226 W. 79th, between Amsterdam & Broadway). If you were a fan of The Calf, this story has a silver lining: Two long-time employees are taking over the space and it will reopen with a [...]
MUW reader David reports that Rose Deli (104 W. 96th, between Amsterdam & Columbus) is closing. Not sure on the exact timing of the closing, but David notes that everything in the store is now 50% off. Elsewhere…
