Alla Spina, the Italian-style gastropub opened by Marc Vetri in 2012, will close this Sunday, January 28th, Urban Outfitters has confirmed. The restaurant will cease operations after brunch service.

A brand rep said┬áthat the concept┬ádidn’t fit into Urban’s plans for scalability and that they will be focusing on Amis, Pizzeria Vetri, and Terrain.

Vetri sold the Vetri Family properties[1], with the exception of Vetri Cucina, to Urban Outfitters in 2015. Just last week, it was announced that Osteria would be purchased from Urban by longtime chef Jeff Michaud[2] in a partnership with restaurateur Michael Schulson.
