Sadly We Bid Angus McIndoe Farewell

Sadly We Bid Angus McIndoe Farewell

Angus Indoe

Angus McIndoe located at 258 W 44th Street closed up shop today. The restaurant was  a pre and post-theater staple since 2001 when it opened. The announcement was made via Twitter.

Plz stop in to say goodbye before we close our doors permanently after dinner Sun Jan 3. Thank you for 15 never dull yrs! -A

The reason for closing was like every other store, restaurant and landmark New Yorkers love….the  “Landlord.” Rent continued to skyrocket as business that are beloved by the community fade away.

Angus McIndoe, was backed by A-list investors that included Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Mel Brooks, Tom Meehan, Rocco Landesman, Terrence McNally, James Naughton, Frank McCourt and Harvey Weinstein. Paul Newman, Kevin Spacey, Faith Prince, Robert De Niro, Ian McKellen, Craig Bierko, Steve Martin, Patrick Stewart, Susan Stroman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ellen DeGeneres and more supped there. The owner was Angus McIndoe a Scottish immigrant who went from maitre d’ at Joe Allen’s to running his own place. He made everybody feel at home.

I will always remember first learning about the ill fated Rebecca here before it was scandalous. Having a birthday dinner with Pat Addiss before a Barry Manilow concert. Having several drinks with Michael Lansing and meeting Robin Wright with the greatly missed Randall Wreghitt.
