Word of Mouth

Via con dios, Via

The Ice House has swallowed another restaurant.

Via Modern Tratteria & Bar has gone the way of Brasserie Rouge, Anita's Crab Shack, and Cucina Cucina, which all occupied the same space in the Ice House at 1801 Wynkoop Street.

Jason Sheehan raved about James Mazzio's menu (he loved Brasserie Rouge, too), but even Mazzio couldn't make this place go. The phone is disconnected, and the website down. But we hear that a deal is already in the works to put a new restaurant into this black hole.
