Tresca's Trattoria closes in a cursed space on 38th
Restaurant turnover isn't anything new -- joints shutter all the time in this city -- but the space at 3555 West 38th Avenue has seen so many places come and go that we're losing track. First, there was Playa de Oro, which closed in early 2011; that was followed by a succession of Argentinean restaurants, namely Viejo Domingo and Caminito Tango. And then, in March of this year, Caminito Tango shuttered, and Tresca's Trattoria, an Italian restaurant, took over the square footage. Alas, that, too, is now gone, the signage removed and the windows papered white.
