This is a love letter to our friends, neighbors, guests and colleagues:
We have some bad news. We are closing Wallflower and The Eddy. Wallflower’s last night of service will be Saturday, June 15th and The Eddy’s last night of service will be Monday, June 17th.
It was a gut-wrenching decision, but one that we needed to make for several reasons, none of which are interesting or important.
This is what's important to us:
First, we always endeavored to do it the right way and were never interested in taking shortcuts. And we intend to stay that way until we close. Recognition from The NY Times, The New Yorker, Zagat, the Michelin Guide, The Infatuation and countless other publications was always greatly appreciated, but what mattered to us most was the passionate and enthusiastic response from our guests. We are pleasers, and nothing pleases a pleaser more than happy guests. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had our fair share of them.
Second, it's important to thank the many people who have worked at both restaurants. There are so many to thank that it would be unfair to point out any individuals as it was always about being a team. It was their dedication, talent and charm that enabled us to execute the vision of refined, fun and zero-pretension neighborhood restaurants. Quite simply, without them, we were nothing.
Third, we are deeply grateful to our many guests. We hosted weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and countless celebrations. Knowing how many remarkable dining options there are in NYC, we have always been humbled that so many people chose to spend their special occasions with us.
We want to take the next 2+ weeks to show our appreciation to you for allowing us to occupy a small footprint in the NYC dining landscape for the last 5+ years.
As such, starting tonight and continuing until we close, we are offering all guests a 25% discount on their check at Wallflower and The Eddy (no minimums, no maximums, no questions asked).
Thank you, thank you, thank you and we hope to see you one last time (or if we’re still on your “list”, for the first time!) over the next couple of weeks.
XO - Wallflower and The Eddy
