Pranzo is Dunzo
The oft beleaguered generic deli, Pranzo (on 50th btw. 6+7th) has been in a perpetual state of flux for as long as the DOH started serious cracking down on sanitation standards. Last year, we noted that they had been temporarily shut down by the DOH, and I walked by this week and noticed that they’ve been shut down for good after racking up 90 violation points.
We generally don’t like to celebrate failure on Midtown lunch, but here’s to hoping that a more interesting (and cleaner) lunch spot takes their place. And for anyone in the market for some heat lamps, hotel pans and other restaurant supply goodies, it looks like they’re auctioning off the final remnants of the restaurant this Thursday.
