Bocca di Bacca
Posted by UWS Maven on 07/19/2014
We were excited when the owners of Arte on 73rd took this over, the Dean's Pizza space on West 85th just east of Bway. The interior was lovely and the menu was simple and very reasonably priced, just what the 'hood needs. But that only lasted about 4 months. Recently, the same owners "rebranded" the place as one of their pricier midtown mini-chain, Bocca di Bacca. They made the menu more complicated and raised the prices dramatically. Last night we were in there (albeit a summer friday night) and the giant space was practically empty. The food was just "okay" and the service was not that of a pricey midtown place, which this clearly emulates. Looks like another swing and a miss and a short-lived existence, unfortunately.
