New & Hot 2017: Dining
October 31, 2017
Meanwhile, where the diner-like Mangrove Café had held court on Fifth Avenue South for decades until it closed last year, Luca Di Falco, a managing partner of Caffe Milano and Bice, oversaw a sweeping renovation. He created Kitchen, a casual breakfast, lunch and dinner spot with American food from a chef who relocated here from Miami. A few blocks down, across from Sugden Community Theatre, Vergina gained new owners and at press time was being rebranded as Monticello, complete with a new menu and décor.
