Tepito hasn't been open lately on First Avenue

Tepito opened here on First Avenue near East 14th Street back in December 2011... however, we haven't seen it open recently. (A Yelp reviewer said that he/she tried to order online from the Mexican restaurant last week, and found it closed.)

The chef here is Adrian Ramirez, who previously worked at Le Cirque and Dos Caminos. No note on the door. No outgoing phone message. No mention of a closure of the restaurant's website.

We first reported back in April 2010 that the former David's Bagels would become a Mexican restaurant...

By the way, anyone ever try Tepito? Seems like a tough location for a nice sit-down restaurant... And how long has that sidewalk shed been up here...?
