Ciao Da Silvano

Da Silvano closed this week. Arrivederci to an Italian classico. Dating favorite in Greenwich Village from the early ’80’s. And many times since. Outdoor sidewalk people watching. Cozy indoor ziti al forno. Abalone was the best thing ever. Extinction now for both.

Recalls the fall of another landmark Italian trattoria. Wedding eve capped decades of vino and festas at the Grotta Azzurra on Mulberry & Broome in Little Italy. From the days of Enrico Caruso. Grapevines and arches. Closed for six years. But. Just looked it up. It’s open again.
