Bar Martignetti Closes Its Doors, Can A Place Reinvent Itself More Times Than Madonna?

A tipster sent in word today that our neighborhood joint, Bar Martignettis, the place which started Bellas then Southside has CLOSED!  Didn't notice?  Probably not since the restaurant has been virtually empty the past couple of months.  But don't worry, it's only for a couple of weeks for "renovations" (apparently the place is going to have a much more "pub-like" feel with a new bar in the back of the restaurant), but we are wondering if anyone will care?

More including note from owners below:

As our tipster points out, (and not to mention something we have noticed): with the reopening of the basement as "Southside", the actual restaurant was getting neglected.  Also, despite the renovations, eating at Netti's STILL doesn't gain you access into Southside "stand in line and be evaluated like the rest- or be a loser and spend $2k!"
