8. Daddy-O (Founded 1999)
A West Village favorite, Daddy-O is a restaurant/bar that needs no introduction. Popular with both locals and tourists alike, the restaurant has prided itself on its fantastic American food and drinks and nearly perfect five-star ratings from over the years. However, amid the Coronavirus, the hotspot has closed for good.
After serving for two decades, owner Phil Casaceli confirmed that the eatery was now to be closed on a permanent basis and will not be reopening after the coronavirus lockdown procedures have been lifted. The official closing date was April 30th, although no official details have been released as to why.
