There may be many reasons why places have closed, and many are mentioned in other threads, but since the culling has hardly started I thought we could gather them here.

I just noticed Jules Bistro has gone. Hardly a destination for gastronomy, but a notable St Marks Place landmark.

Ah. I hadn’t been in probably twenty years but that kind of bums me out. There was a time it was the place to hang for a (at that time in my life) “fancy” but downtown-cool dinner, before or after a show at The Knit or some scuzzy squat party. 

I think they were my first experience with “traditional French service” where customers were actively ignored by the waitstaff. Like, they went far out of their way to avoid even brief eye contact. You had to respect the level of game displayed.
