Caffe Buon Gusto has been closed on Avenue B



Well, there's a long recent history here on East Fifth Street and Avenue B... We first reported Caffe Buon Gusto's incoming arrival in June 2009. However, through the years, the space became dormant, serving as a makeshift shelter and a canvas.

Then! Last April, new signage arrived... The Italian eatery did open in the spring... and the place never seemed all that busy... and while diners generally liked the food, we heard a few stories about the ambiance, like the Rangers game on the flat-panel TV behind the bar on mute with Yanni cranking on the house stereo.

In any event, Bill the libertarian anarchist and a few other readers have noted the place hasn't been open of late... calls to the restaurant go unanswered...

They never did get a beer and wine licence, did they?

I live right there. No one ever ate at the place. Sad.

That's too bad. I never ate inside, but the food was excellent and the owner was really nice.

All these new Italian joints feature micro-portions for big bucks. And the food ain't so hot!!

Great for folks on a diet with money to burn, but not for the rest of us....
