4. Lucky Strike (opened 1989)
The French bistro Lucky Strike was opened in 1989 at 59 Grand Street in Soho by Keith McNally and Edward Youkilis. McNally is more well-known for restaurants like the Minetta Tavern, Balthazar, Schiller’s and more. In mid-April, it was announced that it would be open no more.
A tribute on the front window reads “RIP 1989-2020. Thanks for the Memories.” People left notes, like “Met my wife here! 1997” and “We’ll Miss You.”
