Sadly, this Italian 🇮🇹 restaurant was forced to close after its landlord raised its rent from $8,000 a month to $18,000 a month. The #storefront was taken over by Carbone, an Italian-American restaurant in 2013 owned by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and partner Jeff Zalaznick.
They remodeled the interior but left the remnants of original #neon signage from Rocco’s and added in neon the words “Carbone and “Wines Liquors” In our latest YouTube video NYC LIFE: GREENWICH VILLAGE & SOHO REOPENING DURING COVID-19 OUTDOOR DINING NEW YORK we visit the former location of Rocco’s and see other restaurants and bars which are struggling to survive during the COVID-19 restrictions (which currently do not allow indoor dining).
