In news that ought to come as a shock to absolutely no one, Bar Basque is closing.

Jimmy Haber's ESquared Hospitality is taking over, a move that ensures that the space will continue to be a restaurant of no consequence.

Thing is, I actually liked the food at this place (well, it was only one meal and it was a while ago). Whoever was the first chef was pretty good.

Yes, I had some good food there. But the setting was horrible. How's Foodparc doing?

Yeah, I think there was the potential for good food there. But when the potential for good food collides with Jeffrey Chodorow's management, the latter inevitably drags down the former.
