Hallowed Slice Location Now in the Hands of Grom Gelato

This week we solved one of the great mysteries of Carmine Street when will Beard Papa reopen? (This week!) Now its time to solve another: Whats going into the space on the corner of Bleecker that used to be the beloved Joes Pizza and then Abitinos? Not another slice joint, it turns out. Nicolo de Rienzo, co-owner of Italian gelato chain Grom, tells us he just started construction on a new store that could open there by the end of April. Grom is also in talks to team with Eataly, the Italian supermarket that plans to install its first U.S. store in the Rock Center area at 18 West 48th Street. Cones of Bleecker, youre on notice!
