Mastellone's Italian Deli, a neighborhood institution in Carroll Gardens, is closing for good after business today. It will be replaced by Pacific Green Gourmet, an upscale grocer from up the street, which was itself just recently pushed out of its current location by an incoming J. Crew.
Locals and loyal regulars are lamenting the loss of the old-school deli's homemade mozzarella and classic Italian-American prepared foods, but the owner, Vincent Mastellone, is relatively unshaken by the closing. "Life keeps turning," he tells the Carroll Gardens Patch, and after today he plans to do "as little as possible."
