Elizabeth’s Neighborhood Table, the American comfort food restaurant on 93rd and Columbus that put up a picket fence around its outdoor cafe, is closing its doors after next Tuesday’s dinner service. Elizabeth’s prided itself on sourcing its food from small independent farms and producers.
The restaurant simply couldn’t keep up financially in recent months, a manager told us. They will be keeping their sister restaurant Gabriella’s open, and plan to offer the Elizabeth’s brunch menu there, he said.
One customer wrote that he was “heartbroken.”
“Liz’s place was a true neighborhood restaurant (white picket fence and all), where we were greeted by name and made to feel like we were in someone’s home, but it managed to have clean, largely organic farm-to-table comfort food, using recipes that were handed down by her ancestors,” wrote customer Michael Kosarin. “We’ll miss the bourbon bbq chicken sandwiches, the gorgeous free juice/veggie smoothies at brunch, the perfect vegan soups, the homemade veggie burgers….Ugh, now I’m even more depressed!”
Thanks to Michael, Maria, Philip and Nayantara for tips.
