A hip clothing store has closed, but sushi and ramen are here. Check out a list of recent Upper West Side openings and closings below.
American Apparel on 73rd street and Broadway bit the dust this week, as the larger corporation reels from losses and a boardroom fight. A sign on the door says “We Moved” although it directs shoppers to a store that’s been around for awhile on 60th street. Could the space be combined with the huge Loehmann’s spot that’s been empty for more than a year? Thanks to Gretchen, Harriet and D.R.
Chipotle has its sign up at its newest location on Columbus Avenue near 100th street in the Columbus Square development. Thanks to Jillian for the photo.
Farinella Bakery, a new pizza place on Amsterdam between 72nd and 73rd, was supposed to open earlier this week, but could be delayed until Thursday or Friday, an employee told D.R. We wrote about it here.

The brown paper is now gone from the windows at Italian restaurant Mezzogiorno, which is opening in the old home of Indian Café between 107th and 108th. It’s stil unclear on when exactly it will open. We wrote about it here. Thanks to Robert and R. Schmunk for the tips and photos.
