Closings: Koo Zee Doo and Chick’s Social

No more bone luge shots at Chick's
We’re pretty sad to admit we fall directly in the category of “been meaning to experience the Portuguese-inspired deliciousness of Koo Zee Doo,” as The Insider puts it in a eulogy for the Northern Liberties BYO. Husband and wife team Carla Gonçalves and David Gilberg have decided not to renew their lease, citing “up and down” business, and the last night of service will be Sunday, July 14. We’ll definitely make our way over to try the acclaimed Latin eats before it’s too late, and you should too (215-923-8080).

In other unfortunate news, Chick’s Social just confirmed what Foobooz reported on a tip - the building that houses the Bella Vista bar has been sold, and the restaurant will shut down by Thursday August 1. Located half a block South of South Street, the lounge was once a popular mobster hang, before it was reborn as a cocktail destination. Recently the kitchen got an upgrade, and we’ll miss the zucchini chips and roasted bone marrow (and associated bone luge shots) when the room shuts down (215-625-3700).
