Desnuda, the 18-seat ceviche bar at 122 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue, is shutting down its East Village outpost after service next Wednesday (Jan. 15).
Management recently made the announcement, starting by acknowledging some hookups that apparently took place there through the years. (Well, they do bill themselves as an "intimate date-night wine bar.") Here's part of the message for patrons on the Desnuda website:
We fed a whole lot of people, got a fair amount of people laid, made some good friends and heck even got some people married. After 11+ years it is time to bid adieu to Desnuda East Village. We can not thank you all enough for this amazing journey. It has been a pleasure creating long lasting memories with each and every one of you. We are truly grateful.
The parting message also mentions to "stay tuned while we look for a new location and concept." The Desnuda location in Williamsburg will remain open.
