‘The Sosta’ by ESquared Fails After Little More than a Year
When The Sosta debuted on Mott Street in July 2017, the fast-casual Italian spot was heralded as the next best from hospitality giant ESquared. Tons of hype gushed through the foodie trades. However, the magic of its other hit, By Chloe, seemingly didn’t rub off.
The Sosta closed down last month, concluding just over a year at 186 Mott Street.
Brown paper currently holds court in the windows, shielding the interior from pedestrians until a new commercial tenant is found.
This corner store (at Kenmare Street) was previously occupied by Mott Hardware. It served the community for decades until its demise in August 2016.
