                        12 years ago we opened Ditch Plains in the West Village, and since then we’ve had the distinct pleasure of serving so many neighbors and friends. From our now infamous Ditch Dog (created from a simple mismunication in the kitchen) to our lobster rolls and our epic bloody mary’s, we’ve celebrated with you, we’ve cheered our favorite teams on with you, we’ve nursed hangovers together and we’ve created a few, too. We rode a great, long wave with you and we’re so proud to have been such an integral part of an incredible and vibrant neighborhood for so long.

                        So it is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the closing of Ditch Plains. Many of you already know that running a business in New York City is being increasingly challenging, and Ditch is no exception. After lengthy negotiations we are not able to stay in the space. While we are still actively looking for a new home, our last day of service on Bedford Street is?Sunday, February 25th. Stay in touch for our next wave!
