Caramello Getting Signage on Fifth

There are still a couple more exciting openings to look forward to this year on northern Fifth Avenue: we've got Uncle Barry's Bar opening sooner than you may think (stay tuned for the full scoop tomorrow), and slightly further south, Nicoletta Grippo's Caramello, a "Fine Italian Gelateria," is nearly complete in the space last occupied by Patio Lounge, between Berkeley and Lincoln.

Gold leaf is in the process of being delicately applied to the windows, and the whole facade has gone from green to black. When it opens, we can look forward to homemade gelato and baked goods, chocolate, small pizzas, panini, and coffee, beer and wine.

I spoke with an Ozzie's barista yesterday, who told me that they'd sold off a chunk of the multi-storefront space, which currently takes up over half of the block, to the bar. Construction is underway to build a wall separating the two establishments, which will operate as two completely separate entities (a bar/coffee shop/salon hybrid would have simply been just too much, I suppose).
