Over the weekend we noticed signage for Mi Garba up at 129 Fourth Ave., the former home of Dryden Gallery Space near Union Square. According to the Post, the company, which stocks European supermarkets with freshly prepared Tuscan foods, is planning a 10-table restaurant where clothing items and food and wine will also be for sale.
According to a press release, Mi Garba makes “ready-to-eat meals made from 100 percent authentic Tuscan recipes and natural ingredients,” including “a variety of spreads, entrees, appetizers, sauces and more, made with only the freshest and finest Italian ingredients.”
Call the place Meals-Ready-to-Eataly.
The flagship is right next to the incoming Fresh & Co., which is set to take the place of Pie Face at the corner of Fourth Avenue and East 13th.
