Forget the trouble at Ryan Skeen’s new restaurant — there are even worse snafus at his old joint, Allen & Delancey. In fact, Eater reports that the restaurant, which declared bankruptcy last summer, has finally closed. A former bartender tells that site: “I was just informed that they have been ordered closed today by the State of NY. Any tips on how I go about attempting to collect the $1,100 they owe me in credit card tips???” However, the GM told us the decision came from proprietor Richard Friedberg, who “decided the business wasn’t viable anymore.” Just a week after it came to light that a jilted bride is suing his Cortlandt Manor resort for botching her reception, you can add this to the list of Friedberg’s headaches.
