In the News: Pan Latin to Close

••• “Pan Latin Café [right] at 400 Chambers St. will be closing permanently at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15…. [Chef/owner Sandy] Kraehling said she was ‘actively looking to maintain the Pan Latin ‘brand and concept’ of serving Latin, organic, fair trade, healthy food—’ideally in downtown.'” (Broadsheet Daily)

••• New York magazine’s Adam Platt reviews Terroir Tribeca and, less favorably, Il Matto. The latter is shaping up to be the love-it-or-hate-it restaurant of the year.

••• Battery Park City Library‘s Billy Parrott has been making a list of books mentioned on Mad Men; he also suggests a few that are about the era. There’s one I expected to see but didn’t—Mary Wells Lawrence’s entertaining A Big Life in Advertising. She ended up creating her own agency, and I always think of her when I see the Peggy character.

••• Curbed noticed something special at 73 Worth Street—”part of complex of old Tribeca buildings converted to condos a decade ago. One of the terraces has been turned into a putting green, what the listing describes as a ‘one-of-a-kind surprise.’ The private putt-putt is indeed a rarity, as is the ‘potting and storage shed’ on one of the other terraces, which sadly didn’t make the floorplan.”

••• Besides the one coming to Church and Thomas, Birdbath will open a bakery at the New Museum. (Eater)

  1. Too bad about Pan Latin. We order dinner from there via seamlessweb at least three times a week. What a shame.
