ICYMI: Cacio e Vino has closed on 2nd Ave.; new cafe on the way

Cacio e Vino went dark in late November at 80 Second Ave. between Fourth Street and Fifth Street, per multiple EVG readers. 

There wasn't any mention of a closure on the Italian restaurant's Instagram page. (The last post about a speed dating brunch was from September.) 

In any event, the restaurant will not be reopening.

New operators were granted administrative approval for a beer-wine license from Community Board 3 last month. The unnamed establishment looks to be an all-day cafe/restaurant (proposed hours were 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.).

You can find the questionnaire, which includes a sample menu, here. The new owners were also behind Fillup Coffee on the Upper West Side and in Sunset Park in Brooklyn. No word on an opening date.

I AM HEARTBROKEN. Cacio e Vino was the favorite spot for me and my three friends whenever we went to the Public Theater. The owners treated you like family.
