Report: Jeepney closing after 9 years on 1st Avenue

Jeepney, the 9-year-old Filipino gastropub at 201 First Ave., is closing on Sept. 25, Eater reports

However, owner Nicole Ponseca said that this isn't the end of Jeepney — just at this location between 12th Street and 13th Street. 

Per Eater:
The restaurateur hopes to partner with a restaurant group to open a more casual version of her pioneering restaurant in multiple cities, including the possibility of New York, similar to her expansion in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami earlier this year.
Ponseca and executive chef Miguel Trinidad also operated Maharlika on First Avenue between Sixth Street and Seventh Street from 2011-2019. As Eater noted: "Both restaurants have been heralded for their takes on modern Filipino cooking, which helped introduce New York City to the Southeast Asian cuisine." 

For its remaining time on First Avenue, Jeepney will be open for dinner from 5 to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
