Two Restaurants Bite The Dust

There were big changes on the Drive at the end of this week.  Two long-time restaurants — The Latin Quarter, and La Rocca — closed, quite suddenly.  The Latin Quarter opened in 1991, while La Rocca (with its occasionally signing owner) was founded by Claudio Magagnin back in 1986.

What will happen to the space where Latin Quarter lived is up in the air; however, La Rocca has become, immediately, a new restaurant called The Dime which is owned, so I’m told, by the owners of The Famous Warehouse downtown. The La Rocca sign has been removed, somewhat inexpertly, and there is now a pavement sign noting that all food is available all day for $4.95.

    I have to thank your for this ongoing history of the DRIVE, generations far into the future will appreciate your work, if not the people of the present xo
