90 Years Young, La Foacceria Closes

An Eater correspondent reports from the East Village, "La Focacceria, aka Vinny's, has been in the neighborhood (initially on First Ave & 11th Street, then on First between St. Mark's and 7th) since 1914. I've been there well over 1,000 times, and I would like to know what happened. I cried when I turned the corner and saw that sign yesterday." A poster at MenuPages has the scoop: "It's the old story: the landlord doubled the rent; the owner is too old and tired to start over in a new location." Vinny will be missed.
