The Fate of MOD
Hudson was abuzz last night with the news that MOD Restaurant had closed yesterday, involuntarily, without warning or due process. The story, as Gossips heard it, is that restaurateur Dana Wegener had a verbal agreement with the building's owner that, in exchange for the investment Wegener and her partner had made in upgrading the restaurant space, MOD could occupy the space rent free for the first year. It seems, however, that the owner had a change of heart, because when Wegener arrived at her restaurant yesterday, she found it padlocked. There's a rumor that Joe Fierro, owner of American Glory, wants to open an Italian restaurant in the space.
