Gino, an old school restaurant on the Upper East Side famous for its zebra wallpaper, chicken cacciatore, and "greatest generation" clientele, is in trouble. Profits have gone down by as much as 70 percent in the last couple of years, and owners and unionized workers have been unable to reach an agreement on a new contract. One of the employees tells City Room that although workers rejected the owners' final proposal, a mysterious buyer is interested in acquiring Gino, which opened in 1945. It's all very speculative at this point, but whatever happens, at least we'll haveThe Royal Tenenbaums to remember it by.
