Nooooo! Monsignor's is Toast


Monsignor's, an Italian place (it look more like a "place" than a "restaurant" ) in Greenpoint on Lorimer at Bedford is history. We pointed our camera at the remains on Sunday. The grates are permanently down and the real estate agent's sign is up. Moonshadow, the last eatery to close nearby was replaced by a Dunkin Donuts, so at least we know it won't become one of those. Photoblogger Will Femia wonders on A Test of Will:
Now comes the time to hope/dread what goes in there. Will it be a cool place like some of the other corners of the park (Luncheonette, Mamalu, er... Turkey Nest) or will the Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robins trend that just went in a block away spread to this corner with another chain restaurant?
We assume this means that Tacobite, the taco place that worked out of the back of Monsignor's, is dead too.

It was Moonshadow (a favorite thai takeout place) that closed down the block.
