Cleaning out the Three of Cups
Three of Cups closed after service on April 1... and today, workers are removing some of the contents of the 25-plus-year-old restaurant here on First Avenue and Fifth Street.
An EVG reader shared these photos, noting: "If these are the new owners, they are off to a stellar start showing respect for their neighbors and general sanitation laws." (No word on who authorized this work.)
In announcing the closure, Three of Cups owner Anthony Barile wrote in part: "The reasons are many that we are at this moment, with all of them meaning that I can’t sustain it any longer." The pizzeria and Italian restaurant opened in December 1992.
Emmy Squared, the Williamsburg-based restaurant serving burgers and Detroit-style pizza, is expected to take over this corner space in the months ahead.
