The owners of Adella have decided to close their popular Hell’s Kitchen wine bar. They posted on Instagram: “After seven wonderful years, we at Adella have officially closed our doors. COVID-19 had put a strain on our industry and unfortunately we could not recover. Thank you to our friends and neighbors for creating beautiful memories with us. Stay safe. Stay strong.”

The bar on 43rd Street between 9/10th Avenue has not opened since start of the pandemic in March.

Customers were quick to share their sadness and appreciation of Adella. One regular, Emma said: “Ohhhh no…… Thank you so much for all the amazing meals and wine!!…. but most of all, THANKS for the wonderful feeling of family every time you welcomed me, my family and friends! I considered you an oasis and beautiful extension of home! I will MISS you!”

Raabia Shafi was a regular customer and corporate client. “Oh no 😔 The Adella team is the absolute BEST. Thank you so much for always being there for me and offering a warm place with lovely company to enjoy a glass of wine and amazing food.” She added, “The 3 annual events you hosted for my consulting firm were some of the best memories ever.”

Another client, Kristie Faith, shared similar sentiments: “The home away home feel that the staff at Adella provided was bar none. From just popping in after a long day to client events to family celebrations and to my 7 year-old loving Adella from the people to the desserts! Thank you for all your amazing food but more importantly all the love you shared.”

At the time of going to press, we had not heard back from the owners, brothers Joe and Peter Rabasco and Bobby Khorrami about the future of their other Hell’s Kitchen venture, The Harrow.

The Harrow is open for take away orders & outside dining! Wednesday-Sunday 1pm-9pm. Please support.
