Fraunces Tavern, the current incarnation of the patriot hangout where George Washington was known to tie on the feedbag (and a perennial cheesy Valentines pick), has sent out a memo indicating it will close on Saturday. According to Eater, reps blame poor business for the closing its uncertain whether new management will replace the current team, which reopened the Tavern in 2001 after a $2 million makeover. Sad news, but maybe this is the time for a One If by Landstyle upgrade?
