Its spicy chicharrones may have been praiseworthy, but they were not enough to save Huntington Station’s Caffé Ole.

The months-old, meat-centric Colombian restaurant on Route 110 has closed, and the 14-seat space has sprouted a “for rent” sign.

In March, Newsday food critic Pervaiz Shallwani commended chef Oscar Castiblanco’s arepas, polla a la brasa (marinated and roasted chicken) and a “jigsawlike piece of chicharron that’s rubbed in cumin, black pepper, salt and baking soda,” in his two-star review of the tiny eatery.

Caffé Ole had succeeded another Colombian restaurant called La Colombiana.
