Giuseppe's Has [Not] Been Sold

Posted By on Fri, Nov 5, 2010 at 7:55 AM

[UPDATE: Turns out we received incorrect information for this post. Adam Borowitz has a follow up post with a correction.]

A reader sent me an e-mail yesterday. Apparently, he took his girlfriend out for her birthday to Giuseppe's (by Joe Scordato) after reading my review. He wanted the braciole. (If you've never had this dish you might not understand the passion). He didn't see it on what he called a "small menu," so he asked the bartender—and was told Joe had sold the restaurant.

Oh my!

I called to verify, and sad to say, it's true. The place was sold about two weeks ago. No details beyond that.

This is a real bummer. The food coming out of this kitchen was fabulous and the prices were beyond reasonable.

If I find out any more info, I will pass it on. Until then, remember that even though the sign outside still says "by Joe Scordato," it's not.
