Bellwether in Williamsburg Is Closed

The news isn't all that bad.

The contemporary American restaurant Bellwether, which opened last February at the corner of Union Avenue and Richardson Street in Williamsburg, is closing down for a while, the Local East Village reports. Calyer and Anella co-owner Josh Cohen has left the project, and the restaurant's remaining partners say they'll regroup and relaunch with a lower-priced menu, hopefully next month, and possibly with a new, "well known" partner. The restaurant's enormous vinyl collection will remain. [LEV, Earlier]
