Podunk — the American Tearoom, the family-run cafe on East Fifth Street between Second Avenue and Cooper Square, will be closing after service this coming Mother's Day, May 8.
Until then, the 14-year old Podunk is posting a daily countdown "of favorite pics, recipes, ideas, thoughts and lists till the day we go" on their Instagram and Facebook accounts.
So far, no word on a new location... or the reason for the move.
The building that houses Podunk at 231 E. Fifth St. was part of the portfolio that Raphael Toledano’s Brookhill Properties purchased last fall.
