Talking with Joy Pierson and Bart Potenza at Candle 79 Restaurant in Manhattan


11/26/2019 Update: We recently learned that Candle 79 will be closing on 12/31/2019. The entire corner where the restaurant is located was sold by the landlord to a real estate developer, 5 lots in total. It’s all being knocked down to be replaced with a luxury condo building. This is something that Manhattan does not need more of at the moment. We are so sad to be losing this beautiful space, always filled with love and delicious food. Fortunately the original Candle Cafe is alive and well and serving up wonderful food just a few short blocks away.
