According to todays New York Times, AZ has closed and all that needs saying is that this is long overdue. Its a shame that such a beautiful space had to be wasted on such a mediocre and overpriced restaurant. Given that Patricias Yeo other ventured (forget the name) closed in less than a year, is there hope for anything else she does? What was she doing before AZ because clearly she seems to be missing the mark.
AZ, the elaborate multilevel Asian restaurant at 21 West 17th Street, has closed. The original chef, PATRICIA YEO, left last summer, and the owner, JIMMY HABER, plans to renovate the place and reopen it with a different focus. - NY Times
