Allegretti, the flatiron namesake of chef Alain Allegretti, has shuttered for renovations until September 9, according to an outgoing message. When we asked for details, a rep merely confirmed that it is “closed for renovations for the month of August.” After opening two years ago, the Provençal restaurant got two stars from Frank Bruni and four out of five stars from Jay Cheshes. Our own Adam Platt bestowed a single star on the restaurant, to the chef’s chagrin. A few months ago, a member of eGullet had a “very good meal” there but asked if it was always so empty.
