Uncle Boons Is Closing For Good

The owners have cited difficulties from Covid-19 as the reason for shutting down.

After nearly seven years in Nolita, one of the best Thai spots in the city announced that it’s closing down. In a statement today, co-owners Ann Redding and Matt Danzer said, “COVID-19 has rocked our industry to the core, and we — a small, family-owned business — are no more immune to the realities that threaten restaurants, than any other shop. Despite our good standing, we were not able to reach a manageable agreement with our landlord that takes into account the complexities of running a restaurant under the limitations of Covid-19.” Uncle Boons has been closed since March.

The Uncle Boons restaurant team will focus all of their attention on their newer restaurant, Thai Diner - which has been operating with takeout, delivery, and seat-yourself outdoor dining using a combination of menu items from Uncle Boons, Uncle Boons Sister, and Thai Diner.

“We are so grateful for the accolades and nominations; however, they are meaningless without the people who make a restaurant work and who make guests want to come back.”
