La Focacceria . . . used to be on First Avenue, near St. Marks Place in the East Village. Then it closed. Good homey food, plus those odd little vasteddi sandwichs and nice rice balls.
Now . . . on First Ave between 13th and 14th St. they appear to be sharing a Mexican restaurant. The place is serving both menus - La Focacceria's Sicilian, and Mexican.
My vesteddi-regular friend (they can be ordered without the spleen btw) tells me it is the same food, and at least one of the same waitresses. It's near where Mee noodles used to be...
Ain't that good news?!
