Downtown Lunch Fave Rosario's Closes After 25 Years
Got some terrible news emailed to me late on Friday afternoon about Rosario’s (Pearl btw. Broad & Whitehall), one of the Downtown Lunch places our man Daniel Krieger wrote about a month ago:
I’m a new reader, but I have some real devastating news. I just made my trip from midtown to Rosario’s, since it is friday and I wanted a good lunch. The woman who made my sandwich (#7, the Italian) told me I better enjoy it….since it is the last one I’ll ever have! I was like WTF??? What did I do to you??? Then she explained how they lost their lease!!!! This sucks so bad!!!!!!! I had only been there 3 times! And I found it b/c of Midtown Lunch!!!!! A sad sad day…..First, my favorite Greek place downtown, the Delphi, gets demod, now Rosarios!!!! I am starting to hate how this City is transforming!!!!!!
And I had just gloated about how they hung up Daniel’s review in the store! Such a bummer… It turns out Rosario’s didn’t lose their lease, but the entire building was sold and will be demolished. Friday was their last day, but they’re hoping to open up in another location Downtown. Until then their sandwiches will be missed…
