411NSIDER: Gusto Ristorante is CLOSED

Gusto Ristorante

New Year, New Life for 60 Greenwich Ave

On December 31, 2013 Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano, at 60 Greenwich Ave, served its last meal after a nearly eight year stint. It closed on January 1, 2014 to make room for a new yet-to-be-announced project by proprietor Sasha Muniak.

Muniak owns both the commercial and residential properties at the three-story building which housed the former Gusto Ristorante, as well as its adjacent three-story commercial property at 62 Greenwich Ave, currently the temporary home of Muniak’s Mangia corporate offices. Stay tuned for an additional project within this space as well, which in the past several years has attracted prospective seasoned F&B/Nightlife occupants such as Mark Baker, Paul Sevigny, Armin Amiri, and Omar Hernandez.

As for Muniak’s other enterprises, Mangia at 422 Madison Avenue opened this past autumn, and Mangia is presently in talks to acquire an additional space to append to its stable of properties which also include 57th Street, 23rd Street, a Mangia Organics at 39th Street, and two locations in Seoul, Korea.

    I’m heart broken!! And I’m certain so are all of the Gusto regulars!! Gusto was a neighborhood staple; a place where you could go for any occasion or just go. The place was just so lovely, inviting and comfortable.

    We want it back!!

    I can’t imagine changing the decor for another a place when the current decor is perfect.

    Maybe a different location can be found for the owner’s next project?

    We will miss our “home away from home” and all the kindnesses from the staff over the years.

    Hope we get a new neighborhood place with the same warmth.

    Hi Laura, Nancy and Carl!

    Thank you so much for your very kind words and sentiment. We are very proud of Gusto and are so happy to have been welcomed into the community with such welcoming and supportive arms.

    Please know that it was not a decision made lightly, but various circumstances led Gusto’s daily operations to be a far more daunting exercise than is acceptable in a healthy business enterprise. We felt our best course of action was to pause, re-group, and then start anew with a clean and wholesome slate.

    We have always strived to be a distinguished company whose utmost priority is quality and merit, and we will never forego this aspiration.

    We will be back.

    All our love,
    Mangia LLC
