It’s inarguably the end of an era: Capsouto Frères, which opened in a gorgeous old spice warehouse at Washington and Watts in 1980—thirty-three years ago—is calling it quits. The damage from Sandy was too much; co-owner Jacques Capsouto has been vocal about the lack of financial support after the storm, and I’ll expect we’ll hear more in the wake of this news. (I’ve reached out.) The 8,000-square-foot space has been listed with Town for $35,000 per month.
I went for lunch about a year ago; the soufflé was famous for a reason.
I’m sure a lot of you have stories about the restaurant. Please do share them.
