In late 2023, regulars to this very popular New Paltz establishment were saddened to hear the news of its immediate closure. Shatzi's, which still operates out of a location in Poughkeepsie, recently shuttered their New Paltz location which used to be another great option for a quick bite and drink in the village.

Cited by Buzzfeed as having one of the 'world's greatest burgers,' since closing the New Paltz Shatzi's location back on December 31, 2023, the building has remained vacant. Word has spread to many about what will soon open in the former Shatzi's spot on Main Street, and it seems like the pretty perfect fit for New Paltz.
