Restaurants at Yotel Will Close; Kefi Closed for a Few Months
Over the next two weeks, the Times Square outpost of hotel chain Yotel will close its three restaurants, Grub Street reported. DohYo, Terrace, and Four were all run by chef Richard Sandoval and served Latin-Asian cuisine. The restaurants employed 102 people, and also provided room service to hotel guests. A Department of Labor WARN notice said the shutters were because of a "termination of the restaurant agreement." 570 Tenth Ave.
Kefi on the Upper West Side has been closed for a few weeks after a water-main break, and an update on the restaurant's Facebook page noted that it will be closed longer for reconstruction and renovations for the next few months. Casa Pomona, on the same block, was also affected and has also been closed since the burst. Its owners are hoping for an April reopening, West Side Rag reported. 505 Columbus Ave.
Centro Vinoteca, where Anne Burrell and Leah Cohen once worked, has closed, Zagat learned. Hopeful diners can no longer make reservations on Open Table and the phone number redirects to Gusto, though a server there was unsure why. She said dozens of callers were asking for Centro Vinoteca when patched through. 74 Seventh Ave. S.
