Cafe DeVille's holiday appears rather permanent

In early August, the signs went up at Cafe DeVille on Third Avenue at 13th Street announcing its closure for a holiday through Aug. 30.

As of last night, the eatery had yet to reopen...

There's a transfer between Cafe DeVille and something called East County Louth Inc. (an Irish theme?) on Monday's SLA & DCA Licensing docket.

I never had reason to visit the Cafe DeVille Web site. But I looked last night.

Spoil yourself with one of our hand made cocktails, give in to a scrumptious Chocolate Volcano. Whether joining us for our decadent brunch, a luxurious dinner, our heavenly desserts, or lively happy hour, Cafe Deville's wait staff is warm and attentive and ready to treat you to a marvelous experience. The French doors open in good weather to spill tables out onto the sidewalk. The atmosphere is comfortable, pampered, sexy, fun and relaxed no matter if you sit outside, in the dining room, or at the bar. A seductive feast for the senses!


The reality there for so long,though...

In the spring of 2008, Cafe Deville was named one of the worst outdoor tables at Eater. (Photo via Eater.)

It appears that the schwanky asian place across the street is done as well.

Thanks, HG. That place has seemed doomed for sometime; closing for "renovations" shortly after opening, etc.

First, having just returned from Ireland, I can tell you that County Louth definitely means Irish bar.

But more importantly,there was a chocolate volcano and I missed it? How can I find out about these things before they are gone?

The windows in Cafe Deville were covered with black plastic on Friday. Dead potted palms from inside were also put out on the curb. There wasn't any sort of notice on the door, so it doesn't look a permit has been filed with the city. Intrigued as to what's going on in there.

Thanks for the tip, Margaret!
