Well, this stinks: RBC NYC, the café with very good coffee at 71 Worth, announced yesterday evening on Twitter that it’s closing (“Friends, we’re sorry to inform you we will be closing. Our last day is Wednesday 5/2. Thank you for your support.”) Just last week RBC began baking its pastries in house, and the monitor with swimming-dog video was recently replaced with shelves for more retail, so it must have come as a shock. Perhaps the $18,000 Slayer espresso machine will be put to use at sister restaurant Atera….
I’ll swing by this morning and see if I can find out more.
