Alex Bistro & Bar (2033 East 14th St.), located in the Hanna Building in PlayhouseSqaure, has closed. The restaurant, which opened last summer, did not open for service today.
"We are closed now; we lost our lease," says GM Danny Murray. "I think the landlord wanted us out to get somebody else in there. They pulled the plug on us."
Murray explained that there was no written lease that would have preserved their right to continue operating.
Murray added that last month was the restaurant's best to date.
