The NYC restaurant closings continue: NYC brunch and gathering institution, Grange Hall, is closing tonight. whatisee tipped Gothamist after its visit last night. Grange Hall, like many restaurants, is the victim of escalating rents. What's telling is that a neighboorhod restaurant as successful as Grange Hall would have to close - rents must be crazy. Gothamist will miss going to Commerce Street, waiting amongst all the others who want a hearty meal with friends.
