Ama Closes, But the Napkin Dance Lives On


While Gus & Gabriel opens in the old Kefi space without Donatella Arpaia’s involvement, Eater reports that another space she pulled out of, Ama, has closed in Soho. Especially sad since New York food editors Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld liked the food. But in the realm of Pugliese dining, there’s this bit of consolation: As evidenced by a video uploaded to YouTube yesterday, they’re still shaking their napkins over at Little Italy’s Puglia.
