Zucco's, is it reopening (reopened)?

Does anyone know what's going on with Zucco's Le French Diner?

188 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002

  1. I assume you know the sad news that Zucco died of a heart attack in February. Here's a post about his memorial service:

    But this:

    is a little confusing: it says that "Zucco: Le French Diner on Orchard Street was granted an extension of its license to it for its sidewalk café, which consists of just one table and four chairs." Now I want to know what's going on, myself.

      Yes, I did hear the very sad news. Hadn't seen anything anywhere since then except that there was a hope that the place would reopen.

      Thanks for the link!

          i live very close to there, my gf and i used to eat zucco all the time. we were very sad to hear about zucco, he was a very nice guy. we were planning to stop by to see what the deal was. Zucco himself was not doing the cooking, so its possible that they're going to still operate

            I went there about 3 weeks ago with DGF and it seemed to be operating normally. I would say it was about 80% full when we got there. The food was just as good. I'm not sure if it will slide as time passes, but a couple of weeks after his passing it was still very good.
