Adios Perch Cafe

UPDATE: This morn when we called Perch, the woman who answered said she had "no information." And several people in the comments mentioned that they called and were told it was not closing at all.  However, we still have 3 separate, reliable sources, aside from the Twitter chatter, that say that they ARE closing for good. Guess we'll find out on Monday who's telling the truth (and for the record, I hope that they're not closing). In the meantime, go spend some money there just in case.

Man, the proverbial internet ink hasn't even yet dried on the sad list of Park Slope restaurants that have shuttered in 2011, and already we've got another one to add: Perch Cafe

Apparently the folks at Perch are ringing in the new year by, uhm, closing.

Sad face.

Minus the wannabe Tea Lounge sing-a-long for the mommy brigade, I actually kinda liked Perch. It honestly never occured to me to go there for dinner, but it was sort of that perfect lunch cafe spot on 5th ave that you could always count on whenever you were in the mood for a salad or sandwich (I dug the BLT). 

Anyway, so what have we learned here folks? 2011 = kryptonite for restaurant owners.

Here's hoping for way the hell less carnage in 2012.
