Quhnia Is Packing Up Its Vodka Decanters

First the East Village Yacht Club moved, in part because its rent doubled, making way for coffee bar Arlo and Esme. Now East 1st Street suffers another casualty. Homey Eastern European–fusion spot Quhnia is open today and tomorrow and possibly Friday and Saturday of next week, but a woman who answered the phone there told us that, after four years in business, that’ll be all she wrote: “We’re in the process of closing.” A neighbor tells us the owner has been “threatening to close” for a while, so it seems the writing was on the wall.
