On Thursday, a tipster told us that he overheard waitstaff at Veselka Bowery say they were closing after this weekend. However, we never received confirmation from management.
Now, though, the restaurant at Avalon Bowery Place has updated its Facebook account with this message:
Veselka Bowery wants to thank all of our old friends — and the new friends we made along the way — as we close our doors today at 4PM for the last time.
There were great times and great food. Thank you for your unending support and thanks to the East Village community for being the best little town in the country's biggest city.
We're sorry to close, but it's not goodbye if we see you in our original Veselka :: Beceлкa location, where the doors never close. Keep in touch!
The restaurant opened in November 2011.
