Caffe Pepe Rosso Closes

Caffe Pepe Rosso (127 Avenue C @ 6th street), the East Village outpost of the popular Sullivan St. Italian eatery has shuttered & now become Cotto Restaurant & Caffe.  I remember seeing the listing on Tower Realty some time ago, but I never thought anything of it.  Passing by on Sunday, I saw that the Pepe Rosso sign had been sanded off & the new dividers outside.  I’ll try to review the new restaurant soon.

Update: I passed by yesterday & there was a lot of work going on.  New signage went up, etc.  I expect that the front will be painted blue as well.  I spoke to the shady looking dude that was lurking around (the owner or manager maybe) & he said they were open for business.
