The state of New York has seized and shut down Bino, an Italian restaurant on Smith Street between Sackett and Degraw.

Red and white signs in the window say Bino was “seized for non-payment of taxes.”

The restaurant — formerly Po — was a New York Magazine “critic’s pick,” and a favorite for years in the neighborhood, often with long dinner waits on the weekends.

In April 2010 owners Sarah and Jonathan Casteel split with their business partner and changed the name from Po to Bino.
