Has the Beauvallon curse hit again? Attivo Pizza & Subs, a popular spot that was home of the "Pancho Villo Sub," moved across and up Lincoln Street almost two years ago, to a spot in the swanky Beauvallon. And the owners announced plans to turn the original Arrivo space into a Mexican joint, Attivo Libre. But now the Attivo location in the Beauvallon is closed and covered with paper; one is a notice that Attivo is back in its first location at 124 East Ninth Avenue.
