This Italian restaurant was around for a number of years… but you know a place is in trouble when they start having coupons (whereas they NEVER had any in the past), and add on “kiddie nights.”
I saw signs on the door while passing by, so I stopped in last night to see what’s going on. Yep, That’s Amore is officially closed, and they thanked customers for their patronage over the years. (We had been a couple of times… while the food was decent, the tables were small and the plates were HUGE, which made things uncomfortable… also, I remember it being very loud. I think we went back about a year later, and same situation with the plates and noise level… and after that, never again.)
Coming soon… would you believe… another Italian restaurant? I mean, thank goodness, we only have about 400 others in this area.
So, it’s gonna be “Aunt Butchies of Brooklyn”. Sounds like a restaurant run by a drag queen.
I checked out the menu online… desserts look pretty good. Entrees seem overpriced, especially pasta.
Anyone have any experience with this place… they are also in Staten Island and Brooklyn, apparently.
