The gate is down at Jerry’s Café on Chambers, but a sign on the door says the restaurant will reopen Sept. 3. It didn’t, however, and the phone is always busy, so I grew suspicious. Sure enough, Jerry’s posted this on its Facebook page:
To All Our Loyal Patrons,
We are sad to announce that we have closed our doors. We thank you for all the support over the years. We will miss our Jerry’s family greatly.
Update: Manhattan Borough President—and the best choice for comptroller—Scott Stringer agrees. (Want to bet that Spitzer is more of a Regency Hotel breakfast kind of guy?) The Wall Street Journal Stringer refers to is here.
