Clinton Hill favorite Speedy Romeo is crossing the bridge to Clinton Street. However, at the expense of Fatta Cuckoo.

It was no secret that Fatta Cuckoo was undergoing a massive transformation at 63 Clinton Street. We reported earlier this month that chef-owner Leah Tinari would only have weekend service for the next two months, at which point change would arrive. Now we have a better idea of the scope.

Tinari tells us that she is selling the Fatta Cuckoo assets to the Brooklyn-based pizzeria, Speedy Romeo. She will remain invested in the venture, but check this. Entourage star Adrian Grenier is also a partner. The plan is to kick out Cube 63 Sushi next door, and combine the stores. Expect the same casual dining experience with wood burning oven and wood fire grill; there will also be steak and seafood.

In a statement, Tinari noted:

I am super excited to hand off the space to these guys… I think they will be a great asset to the neighborhood and community. I have been on Clinton Street for awhile and I am thrilled I will still have a chance to continue being a part of the community and Clinton Street. It hasn’t always been easy on Clinton, but I really believe that Speedy will be a great fit and keep the block full of life and great food.

Speedy Romeo will appear before the SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 on November 17. Don’t expect to see Grenier there.
