The Ugly American, which opened in November 2007 has closed. Last night was the the final one for the Pennsport bar that once boasted white table cloths and Koo Zee Doo’s David Gilberg and Carla Goncalves in the kitchen. In recent years it has been much more the neighborhood bar with Thursday night quizzo being one of  the big nights for the bar.

What’s next remains to be seen.

    Grub Street quoted Zagat as stating that the final night would be Sunday, March 3rd, and Michael Klein reported the same. Who said that it closed last night?

    Johnny goodtimes mentioned something about its closure on his site. And friends of mine went last night for quizzo and said it was closed.
