After a little more than a year in business, super-trendy Niko, the Japanese restaurant that took over the former Honmura Ahn space on Mercer Street, has closed — for now, anyway. "We had a flood; whether or not we reopen depends on what happens with the insurance,'' says owner Cobi Levy, who was a partner in the equally trendy and short-lived Charles before opening Niko. But sources close to the situation say that Saturday was the restaurant's last night, and the damage caused by a burst water heater could have easily been repaired if the restaurant had wanted to remain in business.
