Lassi Will Close But Hopes to Make a Comeback


There’s some good news and some bad news for fans of Lassi, one of the better options in the West Village for Indian fare. The bad news is that Lassi will have to give up its tiny, five-seater digs on Greenwich Avenue after August 27. Owner Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez tells us that her lease is up, since her landlord is a “schmuck.” But the good news is that Carlucci-Rodriguez says she’s looking around for a new location. “So it’s sad for some but not sad for us,” she tells us. Specifics on where and when are still TBD, but we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
