San Marzano reopened tonight
The restaurant specializing in handmade pasta is back open tonight after being closed the past week.
Last Friday, the DOB issued a Full Stop Work Order at 117 Second Ave. at East Seventh Street. Per paperwork on file with the city, there was "work without a permit — testing and taking part gas lines" in the basement.
This in a building owned by Maria Hrynenko, who is also the landlord at 121 Second Ave., the site of the deadly gas explosion on March 26. Authorities have said that an illegally tapped gas line at 121 Second Ave. may have caused the deadly blast. The investigation continues.
As a result of the Stop Work Order, San Marzano, the restaurant in the retail space, had to close.
