We just received a news release... nine months after closing Life Cafe on East 10th Street and Avenue B, owner Kathy Kirkpatrick is retiring and shutting down her Bushwick outpost of the restaurant after Saturday night.
According to the Life Cafe website, "A new café/bar will open immediately thereafter under a new name."
Kirkpatrick also writes that her Bushwick landlord announced a few months ago that he would not renew the Life Cafe lease.
Per Kirkpatrick: "I’ve finally come to terms with the events of the last year. My husband John and I have gotten over our disbelief, anger and sadness at losing both places in one year."
The Brooklyn outpost of Life opened in 2002 on Flushing Avenue.
