After reporting the sudden closure of Under The Bridge earlier this week, two more restaurants have taken to Instagram to tell their patrons they’re shutting their doors for good.


On Wednesday, Aperitivo posted a short and sweet message headlined with the word “CLOSED,” referencing the end of the Italian restaurant and pizza bar’s run at 14 East 60th Street. “Thank you for years of shared moments. Today, we close this chapter with gratitude and fond memories. As we close the doors, we extend sincere thanks for the joy and warmth you brought into our restaurant.” Aperitivo opened a little over two years ago and participated in NYC Restaurant Week last summer.

Bilao, a Filipino restaurant at 1437 First Avenue (between 74th and 75th streets), broke the news on Friday, while adding a positive twist at the end of its announcement. “Bilao Filipino Cuisine, will cease operation and will be permanently closed in its current location effective today. We want to thank you for your patronage and for all the support you had given Bilao over the past 3 years,” the restaurant shared on Instagram. “May we also take this opportunity to announce that one of the owners of Bilao, will be opening a new Filipino restaurant next block – details to follow.”
