The Fall of Cipriani

New, 1 comment

2008_07_cipriani.jpgPage Six Mag runs a long piece detailing the "last call" for the Cipriani empire: "After nearly 80 years atop the world’s nightlife pyramid, the dynasty is in disarray. In August 2007, Arrigo Cipriani...became a tax felon. His son...pled guilty to misdemeanor charges of tax evasion...In three weeks, the State Liquor Authority will vote on whether or not to revoke the permits that allow the Ciprianis to serve alcohol at all of their New York establishments...earlier this month the clan lost their lease on the 23rd Street hall...Despite the crowded dining rooms, these troubles—not to mention the free fall of the economy—might just be enough to topple the family tower."
