Closed for Business: Applewood, 501 11th Street

Applewood, the pioneering farm-to-table restaurant, has closed after 11 years on 11th Street near 7th Avenue, DNAinfo reports. Owners David and Laura Shea told the site that running the restaurant while living in upstate Columbia County, where they moved to three and a half years ago, had become "a herculean task."

Applewood opened in September 2004, and with its seasonally-changing menu and emphasis on fresh and sustainable local ingredients it was at the vanguard of a movement that's since become the norm. For years it's been considered one of the neighborhood's best, but with the arrival of newer options like Talde, which occupies the opposite corner, it's hard to imagine that its slightly off-the-beaten-path location didn't begin to work against it. “There’s room for everybody, but at the same time I started to feel like the Brooklyn restaurant scene was getting pretty diluted,” Shea told DNAinfo. “There were just too many choices.”

A quintessential neighborhood mom-and-pop spot, Applewood will certainly be missed. There's been a trend of New York City chefs and restaurateurs choosing to open restaurants upstate, however, so I have a feeling that we haven't heard the end of the Sheas.

Applewood is not responding to requests for refunds for gift cards. I received one 2 weeks ago for my wedding. They must have known they were closing when they issued it. I sent a message to their Facebook page that was marked as read. Shortly afterward they took down their Facebook page. They also didn't respond to a message I left on their voicemail. Shameful.

These are the same fucks who started a GoFundMe to buy that farm. The ethics of crowdsourcing are well argued other places, but I would like to point out that these people are main offenders. Get out of my n'hood.

I need a pinball machine. Buying one supports a dying industry and will revitalize the past time. Plus, it's made in the USA so you're stimulating the pockets of our native factory workers (a rare breed these days). Give me $10 and I'll send you a nice card. Give me $50 and I might let you swing by and play a game. $100 and a hand crafted espresso will be waiting upon your arrival. Just $4300 short of my goal.

This place was tired a long time ago. The only real worry is who would be willing to take on this space now that its so close to two other thriving restaurants.
