Following up on a tip, Adam and I headed to 2Spaghi last night to see if it had indeed closed. The restaurant opened at the end of April, so a remodel seemed unlikely, but the place was a mess. “Either it closed or there was a fire,” said Adam.
An email to the owner went unreturned, but 2Spaghi’s PR rep did answer: “2Spaghi’s Tribeca location is in fact closed but only due to it’s impending relocation. I cannot provide the exact address to where it will be relocating to as we are finalizing the contracts to the new space but we are very exciting to be moving and I will let you know as soon as the details are confirmed!”
I asked whether it was staying in Tribeca, or even Lower Manhattan, but I have yet to hear back. Let’s hope so: I had heard some good reports about the food. As for what’s coming next to the space, we’ll have to see, but at this rate—new restaurants lasting an average of six months—the word “curse” is likely to be bandied about. Which is a shame because the location is pretty ideal. Paging Redfarm….
