From Dover's web site
It would appear that Dover at 412 Court Street served its final dinner this past Sunday evening. We first heard about the surprising closing from a friend who bid adieu to this 'neighborhood gem' on her Facebook page.
By Monday morning, a simple "Closed" sign had been taped to its doors and by Tuesday, the web site
featured the same and had been reduced to just the opening page.
To make sure, we talked past it on Tuesday evening, and the place was dark, the chairs resting on the tables.
The restaurant, owned by chefs Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern, who also opened the wildly popular Battersby on Smith Street just a few blocks away, had received accolades for Dover when it opened in early 2014.
The eatery seemed to be very popular in the neighborhood and certainly drew many dinners who had failed to secure a reservation at Battersby.
It is disappointing that Dover only lasted two years in the neighborhood and sad to see another dark storefront in Carroll Gardens.
The space was previously occupied by Vinzee's , a burger joint, and before that, it was home to t laundromat.
