Two Upper West Side restaurants catering to very different appetites closed in the last few days.
KFC on 106th and Broadway shut its doors and directed people to its other restaurants, Bobby Panza tells us. He sent in the photo above. Thankfully, a Popeye’s is coming to the neighborhood soon.
And Blossom du Jour, a vegan restaurant at 449 Amsterdam Avenue (between 81st & 82nd St.) closed last weekend. An employee at another location told us that rising costs, including for rent and food, caused the closure. “It was the only casual vegan eatery in the neighborhood unfortunately,” wrote Jody. There’s another Blossom du Jour in the Turnstyle mall at Columbus Circle.
