9 Things We’ll Miss About Pastis During Hiatus

BY TEAM JST

Pastis NYC

On February 28th, Pastis will shut down for at least a year for a renovation. Since 1999, the Manhattan institution has been a  popular favorite among models, celebrities, editors and artists. It’s a piece of Paris right in the Meatpacking District, where you know you can get the best martini along with breads that take you back to France (foodies: that’s a real rarity in the States).

Officialized on Pastis’ Facebook, “Hi all, UPDATE ON OUR CLOSING DATE. FRIDAY FEBRUARY 28TH, 2014. Pastis will be closing temporarily so that our landlord can proceed with his renovation and expansion of the building. We anticipate the construction will take about a year. Our plan is to reopen Pastis as soon as construction is finished. Hopefully, in the beginning of 2015. Thanks and hope to see you soon.”

There’s been discrepancies recently about what will actually happen once Pastis reopens. The blog Thirsty NYC is sharing the news that Pastis will, in fact, reopen down the block while the current space will be “Restoration Hardware Hotel”. As in, the furniture store? However the rumors will unfold, one thing for sure, we’re going to miss Pastis, especially those flutes of champagne accompanying our iconic New York brunches.

Here are nine other things we’ll be dreaming about during its renovation:

1. Those gorgeous tiles that belong in every Parisian brasserie, except this one is only a cab ride away.
