We’ve received a tip that Oxbow Tavern has closed its location at 240 Columbus Avenue, between 71st and 72nd Streets (thanks to ‘Upper West Sider.’)
The approximately 2,000 square foot space is now on the market for $195 per square foot per year, which would come out to $390,000 per year (or $32,500 per month). The listing website indicates that it was first put on the market on May 25th.
Oxbow Tavern’s website currently states that they are only temporarily closed. They have not announced anything about a permanent closing on their social media pages either.
We reached out to the restaurant owners, the listing brokers, and the building landlord. Earlier today, the landlord, Joshua Salon of Salon Realty, did in fact confirm that Oxbow Tavern has permanently closed, and that they are in talks with other restaurants who may be interested in the space.
Oxbow Tavern first opened in February 2018, with Cafe Talullah preceding them. The chef was Tom Valenti, who was formerly at Ouest.Get the Upper West Side newsletter:
