If there are a any restaurants in the neighborhood that could officially be under a "deathwatch," Belleville, on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Fifth Street, would certainly be on the list (along with Moutarde and I'm sure a few others). It appears that the French bistro had a close call over the weekend, as they were closed for a couple days and re-opened with a sign on the front window saying that the restaurant is now under new management.
Oddly enough, during the time that it was closed, another sign on the window claimed that the closure was due to a "refrigeration issue," according to a tipster.
It certainly isn't as obvious as only being open on weekends, but it's still quite apparent that Belleville is going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment.
