Barocco Closes in Chelsea

Last weekend we noticed that Barocco (the Zampa team’s redo of Barocco Café on Ninth Avenue) was papered over, and today Jeremiah’s Vanishing hears the narrow wine bar has been shuttered (and under renovation) for weeks. An employee at Zampa tells us that Anthony Briatico is no longer involved as of a few months ago, so it’s safe to say Barocco is a goner after just a year. It’s a sad day for focaccia lovers.
