Agozar!, an East Village fixture that serves up modern Cuban cuisine, is closing this week after 15 years.
Owners Gerardo Perez and Diana Mastrodimos announced on Facebook that there last day of service will be Thursday, Nov. 30. “It has been a pleasure serving the community for over a decade,” they wrote. “Our family would like to thank our hardworking dedicated staff, our customers, and regulars for your loyalty and patronage throughout the years. THANK YOU! We hope to see you soon!”
The colorful brick-lined eatery on Bowery, near Bleecker Street, is known for its Cuban sandwiches, grilled skirt steak and fried treats like yuca fritas. Today, a chalk sign in front of the bistro invited customers to “join us one last time for a happy hour mojito or sangria and party with us.”
We’ve reached out to the restaurant for comment and will update if we get more details.
