West Village Carnage: Spasso, Doppio and Chapter One All Closed

November 30, 2015

The West Village is a notoriously difficult neighborhood to open and sustain a restaurant given its ultra-high rents. And in the last few weeks several notable spots have bitten the bullet. Over the weekend we noticed the closure of three restaurants including the four-year old Italian spot Spasso on Hudson Street. Additionally the Hamptons Italian import Doppio also appears to be shuttered, just a few blocks north. The seven-month-old Chapter One on Greenwich Avenue is also closed, with a notice on the door that the space has been seized by the landlord. As previously reported, Harold Dieterle's Kin Shop closed last Wednesday and his Jones Street mainstay, Perilla will close at the end of this week as well.
