And The ZEBRA WALLPAPER
Gino is sadly Closed.
The legendary Upper East Side red-sauce joint is closing its kitchen after 65 years.
“Forget about it. I feel very bad,” said co-owner Salvatore Doria, 70.
“Frank Sinatra Barbra Streisand, Brooke Shields, Ben Gazzara. We knew everyone very well,” said head waiter Marco Del’abruzzo, 46, who has worked at the eatery on Lexington Avenue and 61st Street for 22 years.
Over the past year, stories have surfaced again and again regarding the trouble at , the 65 year-old Upper East Side Italian joint with the oh so famous zebra wall paper. Last February, the owner complained of terrible business. Then it was almost killed by the union. Then it sat in limbo. Then it was shuttering again. Then it was almost saved. Today comes this from the Post: ". The legendary Upper East Side red-sauce joint is closing its kitchen after 65 years." A call confirms they will close at the end of the month.
