As Gothamist reports, Hail Mary is the latest casualty in a mass number of shutdowns in the past six months.

Hail Mary, the cute gourmet “diner” on Greenpoint Avenue, closed over the weekend after less than a year in the neighborhood. This is sad news for mac and cheese lovers, funfetti fanatics, and anyone who enjoys high quality comfort food in a cozy, welcoming environment. If you love a restaurant, go there frequently, or risk saying farewell.

Reached via email, owners Ham and Sohla El-Waylly told us they “tried their best” to keep their Greenpoint dream alive. “We made something we loved and that completely represented us through and through,” they told Gothamist. “Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough.

Guys, I think we might have fucked up. For years we metalheads have fantasized about hell on earth. From the goat altars of satanic black metal to the fire-licked peaks of every tech-death album cover ever, we imagined an underworld ascended—a dark fantasy dragged into the light. Now that we are living it on a day-to-day (and executive-order-to-executive-order basis), however, it’s safe to say we got more than we bargained for. So sorry earth. Our bad. We’ll try to keep our mouths shut next time (if there is a next time).
