El artículo de Luke Fortney para Eater New York sobre el cierre de muchos restaurantes en la ciudad de Nueva York este año y donde cinco propietarios que han decidido bajar la persiana esgrimen sus razones.
«The first months of the year are notoriously hard on restaurants. People cut back on spending, or stay indoors because of the cold. Restaurant closures are expected during this period, but the number this year was higher than normal.
“People are acting like bears,” says Michael Petrovitch, behind the Puerto Rican food stall Que Chevere. “They’re hibernating.” Between the last week of December and the first week of January, Eater confirmed over 40 restaurant and bar closures. The oldest, a deli in Bayside, was open for 92 years. The newest, a hot dog shop on St. Marks Place, lasted two months.
The latest round of closures shows what it takes to run a “successful” restaurant in New York City right now. It relies on investor capital, or extended work days, the right address, and maybe a deal on rent.
