Say Goodbye to Shang, Travertine, Cowgirl’s Baking


It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. Here are some of the dogs who got eaten this week.

Susur Lee’s Shang, in the Thompson LES hotel, has closed and will be replaced by a Blue Ribbon restaurant. [Eater]

Crêpe Monster, the Tokyo-style crepe counter at Food Gallery 32, has apparently been shuttered since mid-August. [Midtown Lunch]

The upstairs dining room at Travertine has been closed since mid-July. It will reportedly reopen as a “cafeteria style, downtown comfort food” spot. [Bowery Boogie]

Kush Lounge, on the Lower East Side, is no more. It looks like Paris export Experimental Cocktail Club will replace it. [Bowery Boogie]

Cowgirl’s Baking, in the East Village, shuttered in late September after just six months in business. The owners tweeted something about “heading west.” [EV Grieve]

The bad-luck space that most recently housed Vie De France — recently shortened to just Vie — will once more be empty. [Bowery Boogie]

Chiles & Chocolate, a Oaxacan restaurant in Park Slope that relocated from a few blocks away this summer, could not keep the place filled and was forced to close. [Here’s Park Slope]
