Sure enough, it is official. Eater reports, “Tribeca Latin restaurant Super Linda is closing after service on Friday. The Super Linda team sends along the following statement: “Lou Ceruzzi has decided to close Super Linda, the Latin grill in Tribeca. He and his partners are excited to bring a new concept, already in the works, to the neighborhood.” As you may recall, Matt Abramcyk and Serge Becker opened this restaurant with a handful of other partners two years ago. Now it sounds like Ceruzzi is in charge. The critics ignored Super Linda, but it had a fun bar and some good food.”
Update February 22, 2013- Super Linda is now mostly devoid of interesting people since the host, Chris, has left for another job. What remains is a Tribeca dudefest, outnumbering the ladies 20 to 1, and wannabe pretentious bearded hipster bartenders who tweet and chat as you wait, then serve you, if they feel like it. With the additional loss of nearby Duane Park, Tribeca is back to being sorely in need of entertainment after 10:00 PM.

BatteryPark.TV went out last night in our Sisyphean effort to find some fun in boring Tribeca. To our shock, we actually found a good place.
Super Linda is a nice new dive that has several lounge rooms in the basement. The talent was quite respectable. Our server Yaya and host Chris Session did a great job. We made some new friends.
Before Super Linda, we dipped into the Duane Park burlesque dinner show. We learned that they will be leaving the residential TriBeCa and heading to a more party-conducive location at the Bowery Poetry Club.
