Less than a couple of years after it was featured in Gothamist’s “Still Got It” column celebrating eateries that “continue to serve mouthwatering meals and drinks long after the buzz has faded,” La Nonna ain’t got it no more. We’re talking about the trattoria’s Bedford Avenue location, which opened in 2006 and closed this week.
A call to a manager at the larger, flashier Kent Avenue location reveals that the lease was up at the low-key original, which had lately downgraded to serving just its thin-crust pies. A sign on the door reads, “We want to thank all our loyal customers who have supported us through the years. We will miss you all.”
One has to wonder what’ll happen to the storefront at 237 Bedford, between North 4th and 3rd Streets, as it’s on the same block as the incoming Apple and Whole Food stores. As for Italian food, you won’t have to look far: a location of Parm is opening around the corner at 162 N 4th Street, next to the new location of Sweetgreen.
