I only just devoted a "Who Goes There?" column to it in April. And now Von Westernhagen is maybe for the drop.
Queens Crap, who was tipped off by a read who talked to the bartender, sent me the news that the restaurant had been sold. It is unclear if this marks the end for the German eatery, or if the new owners will continue the tradition. There is apparently some kind of party on June 19.
Cursed be me that I live in New York during the era in which its soul is willfully dismantled.
Lost City's looking for the exit.
