My Most Favorite Food, a kosher restaurant-bakery-caterer that’s served the Upper West Side for over 40 years, is closing operations at 247 W. 72nd Street, according to posters in its windows and a telephone conversation with Diane, an employee.
“The renewal of the lease with the landlord suddenly fell through,” she said.
Effective immediately, the restaurant will no longer serve meals. Next week the bakery will be open if customers would like to pick up some of their most favorite challahs, cookies, cakes and specialty desserts as well as bid farewell to the staff, Diane said.
After that, all doors will close but the company will offer bakery items for catering and delivery. To place orders, call 212-580-5130 or order online.
Diane is optimistic about reviving the restaurant at a new location. “Hopefully we will have a new life and not be gone-gone-gone,” she said. “We will come back with a bang.”
