Holy cannoli! We just received this breaking news missive from our pal, Irene LoRe, at Aunt Suzie’s restaurant, which was a mainstay in Park Slope since long before Fifth Avenue became a major foodie destination.
We’re crying in our cacciatore, so we might as well let Irene just speak for herself. Take it away, Irene:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Aunt Suzie’s has been in Park Slope for 25 years and we feel privileged to have been a part of the neighborhood and a part of your lives.
It has been a wonderful run and it is time to say goodbye. Pat, Irene, Ginny (sister) Liz (niece) Tamara (daughter) and the staff are all sad to go. We will miss all of you but to “Everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven.”
This restaurant was inspired by my mother who was Aunt Suzie to all who knew her. She embodied the values of family, sharing and giving both emotionally and with the physical nourishment of wonderful Italian food. We hope we did some of these things for you.
We would like to give special thanks to all our current and past employees without whom Aunt Suzie’s could not have been so successful. Antonio and Michelangelo are two of the hardest working cooks I know. Tiffany loves all the customers, especially the ones with kids. We have watched Patrick grow up in our midst and it has been wonderful to work with him.
Our last day of operation will be Jan. 1, 2012.
Arriverderci a tutti
Good night, Irene. Check back for more on this breaking story.Reach the newsroom at newsroom@c
