Just a few weeks ago, it became clear that the Bolognese was probably going arrivederci, and now it is confirmed that Pino Luongo’s Centolire will indeed close because of bankruptcy. “We will close the business,” Luongo confirmed on June 1. Italian food seekers will be forced to compensate with meals at Locanda Verde, which the famously sharp-tongued Luongo once called, “the worst Italian food I ever had in New York.” [Bloomberg]
