Little Italy Will Get Two New Mercatos Next Month

Little Italy Will Get Two New Mercatos Next Month

It’s clear the space at 181 Grand Street, off of Mulberry Street, is cursed — Dom’s made a go at it very briefly before closing because of “family problems” (the landlord eventually seized the place), and then Dolce Vita was there for not even a year before the landlord stepped in again. Still, it’ll be revived next month with the opening of Acquedolci, a self-described “mercato Siciliano.” A sign promises Sicilian and Italian groceries, breads, deli meats, prepared salads, and coffee. All well and good, but the space is pretty small — will it be able to compete with Di Palo’s gastronomia, also opening next month?
