Food News: Nicholas James Bistro in Merrick Closed
Sad Food News coming out of Merrick today. Kevin Liebov, the owner/chef of Nicholas James Bistro in Merrick has announced that they have shuttered their doors, after 19 years in service, mostly due to economic reasons and the increasing rents that are turning up on Merrick Road.
Unlike most restaurants that go out of business and are never to be heard again, Kevin has noted that he will be landing at Savoy Tavern, just a few minutes away on Merrick Avenue (just north of the train station). We’ve dined with Kevin a variety of times over the years and while we’re sad to see the Nicholas James location closed, we’re thrilled for him and excited for his new venture.
