Zucco’s Le French Diner Remains Closed, Probably Not Reopening

You know what sucks ass? Zucco’s Le French Diner is all but donezo. Sources tell us that current ownership is in too deep (“considerable debt”) and now looking to sell the assets. Most likely to some friends … so we’re told. Ergo, the space could remain a French bistro but with totally different vibe and menu. Apparently running the restaurant became “too much of a headache” for Zucco’s successors.

It’s also worth pointing out that Seamless still carries an active listing for Zucco’s Le French Diner. One reader took the bait. He placed an order last month, but a Seamless rep returned the call to say it would be refunded since the place was “closed until September 9.” Here we are a month later…

We first reported on the closure and possible sale of the restaurant back in August. Meanwhile, a hand-written sign has since taken residence in the window, blaming the closure on unspecified “issues with the city”:

Due to some issue with the city, Le French Diner is temporarily closed. Will reopen soon. Thanks.
