According to a Twitter source (I love Twitter), The Phoenix is now closed for business.
Very sad– I went there with my prom date Junior year of high school. It was originally a Jewish men’s club (as the social clubs in the city did not allow Jews to be members) and eventually turned into a restaurant and reception hall. I was there most recently for the Bacchanalian Society– very sad to see it go.
In calling this evening, I got a machine and not the restaurant– will follow up with more news as I get it.
ETA: According to Polly Campbell, this is just the restaurant and not the banquet hall. That’s good news, anyway. Weddings at the Phoenix are lovely.
