Just to follow-up on this post, it seems that Col Legno is indeed gone for good. I walked by it again on Saturday to find the metal gate pulled up, revealing a make-shift wooden door behind it. Clearly, the interior is in the process of being gutted. I started chatting with an Irish bartender from across the street who was having a smoke on a nearby stoop, and he confirmed that the restaurant had indeed shut its doors. Evidently, Chris, Col Legno's owner, had been talking for a while about getting out of the restaurant business and finally decided that the time was right. As I understand it, the sushi restaurant next door has bought the space and will be breaking through the wall to expand their operation. I just wish I'd heard about Chris' plans before hand. I'd have loved to have had one last meal there and thank him for the many fine evenings my wife and I spent there over the years.
