Cafe Loup, the famous literary fixture in the West Village, has been seized by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.

It’s unclear whether the closure is permanent, Eater reported. According the state’s records, Cafe Loup has four warrants for unpaid taxes dating back to September 2017 — which total $241,656.

The bistro opened in 1977 on West 13th Street near University Place and later moved down the street to the retail space at the Greenwich Village Towers co-op at 105 West 13th Street. Cafe Loup’s regular patrons included Paul Simon, Susan Sontag and Paul Auster. [Eater] — Meenal Vamburkar
