Let the Deathwatching begin. It's going to be a bloody week here on Eater, and to start the week off right, the first Deathwatch stamp goes to a fairly obvious contender. Scuderia, a spinoff of the still popular Village staple Da Silvano, never caught on as a local hang or a dining destination after a hyped and busy opening period. It's held on for two years, much to the credit of the very lovely owner Leyla Marchetto, but time is quickly running out. Eater sources reveal brokers have been shopping the place to chefs and restaurateurs over the past few months. Which doesn't mean it's necessarily dead in the water—Allen & Delancey was shopped over a year before its final shutter—but it's not a great sign.
Update: Right after we posted this, restaurant consultant and broker forwarded us the following listing on the space, adding that anything but an Italian restaurant could survive in the space:
