RIP, Tangerine

Stephen Starr says reality has intruded on his Moroccan fantasy.

Saturday night was the finale for Tangerine at 232 Market St. after nearly 10 years.

The restaurateur said the economy had battered business but, more importantly, "the concept has run its course."

He said he would retool it into something "more fitting with Old City -- people aren't paying $65, $70 a person" and would reopen it next June.
