This is a bummer: Yesterday, Bill Telepan closed his ten-year-old Upper West Side restaurant. He offered the following explanation to West Side Rag, and wrote a good-bye letter on his website.

Like most restaurants, we operate with very small margins. As our costs go up each year and our revenue has not kept pace, we have been operating at a loss and cannot sustain the business.
