Cafe on Clinton closed?

Location doesn't always equal guaranteed success...I mean look at how many great places on Smith St. that went under for no good reason! and you can't beat that location!!!

W&M LOOKS filled to capacity because they only have 7-8 tables, the rest is taken up by the bar, I can't even afford to go there and give it a try, because its so overpriced! I hope whatever replaces cafe on clinton is reasonably priced and has good food! I don't care how pretty it is!!!

FASCATI CLOSED FOR ONE MONTH :: WHAT TO DO?

Check out Franny's or Lucali's, I absolutely love their pizza!

Sam's is an old standby too...

Food at Villa Barone Manor or Marina del Rey in the Bronx

I've always heard great things about Marina but I've never been there. My sister got married at El Caribe in Mill Basin Brooklyn. It was fantastic and the food kept everyone talking for days....Good luck and congrats!

Cafe Carcioffo on Court Street closed by DOH

I also passed by and actually spoke to the people, it was an incredibly sad letter explaining how the health dept treated them so badly while closing their place. The owners were real friendly and humble...I think we all know what it's like to deal with a city agency...DMV? DOE? MTA? Frustrating!!! The owners were thanking the neighborhhood for their support and I overheard people saying they wanted to start a petition/collection to save carciofo. Perhaps some people took the note the wrong way...

Blue Marble Ice Cream = Best I've Ever Had

I can't imagine balsamic vinegar as a topping!! That must be incredibly rich and tangy...

Just saw the sign today, too bad, the place was there a long time, a neighborhood staple...I will miss their grilled calamari and fresh pastas...alas another one bites the dust!!
