After so many weeks when I was reporting nothing but restaurant openings, now it seems that I’m only hearing about closings.
Avra Greek Tavern — the little sister to Taverna Plaka — has indeed gone out of business. The Midtown restaurant was the latest occupant of a seemingly snakebit restaurant space on Juniper Street that has been home to several failed restaurants. Avra did hang on the longest, for more than four years. It closed after New Year’s Eve.
I’ve got a question, and it comes with a prize. What restaurant was in the space before Avra. The first person to answer this correctly will win a $10 gift card to Denny’s.
I know…the mind boggles…
