Walking through Union Square last night I was sad to see that Zen Palate has closed. The notice in the window thanked customers and explained that they their lease had expired. There were no gripes about losing a lease or a greedy landlord. Considering the low height of the building, you have to wonder if a future condo is in the works, or if the landlord just found someone willing to pay a bizillion more in rent. If I hear anything about the future of the building, I'll post it. meanwhile, in just a few moments outside of the former Zen Palate, many pictures were taken, and cell calls made changing the location of that nights date. Zen Palate- you will be missed, fortunately they still have a few locations left.
