Say Goodbye to Kong Kee, White Slab Palace, APL


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

Eton on Vanderbilt has given up the ghost. Could the new Chuko, with its superlative ramen just down the street, have anything to do with it?

Kong Kee, in Chinatown, has also closed its doors. It was known particularly for its tofu and bargain-basement prices. No word yet on any replacement.

White Slab Palace, the Lower East Side Scandinavian nightspot, has officially shuttered, citing police harassment.

420 Bar and Lounge, on the Upper West Side, shuttered in April, but it looks like the troubled bar could be facing $80,000 in fines over violations.

APL, which opened in May, is already done. It will become the Orchard House in mid-November.

Tribeca’s Bon Chicken, which was Bon Chon Chicken when it opened and may have been Bon Bon Chicken online, has served its last wing.

Rocky’s Italian Restaurant, in Little Italy, will close at the end of the year after 30 years in business. Apparently, Taïm will set up shop in the space.

The original Ray’s Pizza (not Original Ray’s or any of the other Rays), on Prince Street, is closing this Sunday after announcing it would do so this summer.
