Speedy Romeo Pizza Partners with ‘Entrouage’ Star Adrian Grenier and Leah Tinari for Clinton Street Location

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.
