Marco & Pepe was closed today. Apparently, it was officially sold to a new owner just this afternoon, who has stated that the plan is to reopen and keep the restaurant very similar in style and menu. The hope is to open as soon as possible, as they navigate (of course) through the city's various inspections/approvals/etc.

I'd heard a rumor that the owner was considering selling but had no idea how advanced the timing of the actual sale was.

Thanks for the "hot off the press" news. I will admit that I used to be a big fan of M&P for many years, but last visited a few years ago, after a few odd/unpleasant interactions and visits. They used to have a great menu that varied with the seasons, but which retained a few standouts throughout the year. At some point, they decided to tweak and really change the menu, and those changes really missed the mark. The last time I went there, I was really underwhelmed. There are so many good places in DTJC that enduring subpar food at M&P just wasn't worth it. Still, I am sad to see them go, as they had been an early booster of JC, and they really had some great food for a long while.
