Yesterday, I read the sad news that La Silhouette has closed. It was the only restaurant of its caliber in Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton. The owner Tito is a sweetheart, and I wish him the best and hope things work out. On 51st Street and 9th Avenue, Go Sushi and Chanpen Thai are both closed with brown paper covering the windows. I admit I was not a fan of either. The food at Go Sushi was below average, and the food at Chanpen Thai was average in a neighborhood with exceptional Thai restaurants.
The 50th Street location of Lime Jungle closed and re-opened under the name Green Rancho.
The second location of Totto Ramen on 51st Street near 10th Avenue is nearly open. I saw people working inside.
