The Loudest Brunch Spot On The Lower East Side Is Closing: A Poem

Bye, Schiller’s

Image: slevey

Pete Wells was right
Lockhart was wrong;
Schiller’s shone bright 
But the food took too long.

The bathrooms were strange
Like Ally McBeal;
I know it’s a change
But I’m sure you can deal.

There’s still Odeon
And Cherche Midi;
The end of this one
Should not be pitied.

I’m sure you and yours
Can find a new place
To open the doors
And get daytime shitfaced


(Also it was loud as hell. Good riddance.)
