NYC Restaurant Closings

NYC restaurants that have permanently closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Even though new places continue to open, this is an incredibly challenging time for restaurants. The shutdown, reopening at reduced capacity, and concerns for health and safety have forced many to close their doors permanently.

All have been affected - from favorite neighborhood spots to bars where you once drank way too much on your birthday. Here is a running list of all the spots that have closed during the pandemic, divided by neighborhood. If you know a place that should be included, please send an email to nyc@theinfatuation.com.

And if you’re looking for ways to show support for your favorite restaurants and their staff, tip as well as you can when you order takeout or dine in-person. You can also volunteer to make vaccine appointments for restaurant workers who aren’t able to dedicate the time searching for open slots. Sign up for East Village Mutual Aid Group volunteer program here (and if you’re a restaurant worker who wants help getting an appointment, you can fill out this form).

This week, we’ve unfortunately added: Jing Fong, The Original Sandwich Shoppee, and more.
