Lies, lies, lies! Yep, it appears the end has really come for Bastide, despite a flesh-and-blood human being promising that the restaurant would reopen in August only yesterday afternoon. We’ll certainly miss the cooking and the courtyard (if not the mendacity), but chances are it won’t be long before some splashy European-owned New York restaurant takes over the space. [Eater]
