Possible Closings on W72nd St. (Earthen Oven and Fine & Shapiro?)

nativeNYer | Aug 17, 2011 05:49 PM

Since Monday, Earthen Oven has had a sign on its front door: "Sorry. We are closed today". Then I noticed most of the place settings, that were still there on Monday, had been cleared from the tables on Tuesday. This place was a great neighborhood option when it first appeared. Service and food quality declined over the past years although it was still decent as we don't have many good Indian alternatives in the nabe. Perhaps they are just repairing the place. Time will tell.

Speaking of repairs, Fine & Shapiro has papered their windows as of last weekend , A sign on their front door mentions the plan for ongoing reservations. Although I'm not a fan of the place, it has been around for 80 years.

Anyone know the scoop on either of these places?
