As of today, Dragonfly and Garage Bar (1865 W. 25th St.) are closed.
Marlin Kaplan, chef and owner, says that landlord Adam Waldbaum decided to shutter the businesses without warning.
"I found out he slammed the doors just like everybody else," Kaplan told me. "The business was really doing well."
Waldbaum offers a different explanation, stating that Kaplan left him high and dry.
"He came in, sold me a bill of goods, none of it came true, and then he left," states Waldbaum. "Rent wasn't being paid."
Kaplan adds "I'm still a little in shock."
