Well that was quick. Izakaya restaurant Teo has closed after just opening last December. Operated by the Momofuku
alum Joaquin Baca, the restaurant was popular with critics, so it’s closing is a huge surprise. From the Teo website:
It is with much regret that Teo will be closing it’s doors. Thank you to the welcoming community in Bushwick, fellow businesses that supported us on this journey, and every guest that has come and shared in this experience with us. From our hearts to yours. ♥️
Eater has more information from Baca:
Baca says in an email that he found out before service on Friday about the closure from his investors, who told him that the concept was “too ‘ambitious’ for Bushwick.” He does not yet know what he plans to do next. “I’m really perplexed,” he says of their decision. “Feels like my best work.”
