A home for wayward creatives of all stripes, Angelica Kitchen, shut down on Friday. As beloved for its organic vegan cuisine and low prices as it was for its democratic openness, the restaurant, which started serving in 1976, was a key part of what’s increasingly becoming old New York. A light drizzle fell as I drew its façade on its last day, but the weather wasn’t enough to stop me. Now it can live on here. For details on its past and its meaning, James Oseland memorialized it on Eater last week, and Jay Sacher did the same on The New Yorker’s website. Rest in peace. (Formerly of 300 E 12th St. 212-228-2909.)
