A & S NOT closing!

PhilipJ | May 8, 2003 07:34 PM

I like many others have been very sad at the rumour that A & S prok on 5th Avenue is closing.

I happened to bump into Tony Schiccitano, the distinguished older gentleman who owns A & S and Cucina. When I told him he was making a lot of people sad with the closing he was quite upset. He is NOT closing the store; rather, he is changing the style of it to include prepared foods (he's from the old school ... "... people don't cook as much as they used to ...") ...

. so there is hope! Is it possible that A & S will not only have fantastic fresh mozzarella, fennel sausage, italian bread, sandwiches etc., but maybe also amazing prepared foods!
