The Cuozz brings word today that the Second Avenue Subway construction will soon claim another victim. Tony's DiNapoli, "one of the Upper East Side's largest, most popular restaurants," must close in the next one to three years to make way for a new entrance to the East 86th Street stop.
As the Cuozz notes, Tony's is no mom-and-pop operation—the owners also own all Dallas BBQ locations and various Tony's around town—yet still, "the subway spares nothing in its path." The restaurant has already lost its outdoor seating to MTA work and just had its sidewalk narrowed.
