'Sorry, We're Closed' -- permanently

On Englewood's Grand Avenue, a few blocks from the main shopping street, a Greek restaurant called Nisi Estiatorio held forth for many years as one of the best in the small city, offering fresh seafood displayed on ice in the dining room.The property was sold.

Namaskaar, an Asian Indian restaurant on Grand Avenue in Englewood, has been replaced by Basil. The space, on the ground floor of an apartment building, once was an antique shop.

Free parking on Englewood's Palisade Avenue was available during a three-day sidewalk sale.

Also on Palisade Avenue, Levant Grille has gone out of business, said a waiter next door at It's Greek To Me. Restaurateur Charles Hamade says he wants to open another U Pie Company here.

This Palisade Avenue dump once housed Hamade's Wild Ginger/Wild Nigiri, Mexican restaurant and original U Pie Company.

New restaurants have opened on Palisade Avenue, including Tani, above.

Burgerwood opened next to Solaia, an upscale Italian restaurant, on North Van Brunt Street in Englewood. The name reminds some people of "Peckerwood."

Phoebe's Place on Cedar Lane in Teaneck offered food and live music. It had opened in the same space used by Blast, an art-filled coffeehouse.

On Hackensack's Main Street, Daheen Wang Mandoo, a popular Korean dumpling restaurant in New York City, has given up trying to open a branch where a Korean bakery operated for many years. Neighbors said the city dragged its feet on issuing building permits for the renovation.
