After 16 years on 1st Ave and 7th St., La Casalinga is closing on Monday due to a rent increase thanks to the building's new owner. They might be moving to the West Village or maybe Williamsburg. The future is uncertain. What is certain is that I will miss their delicious and cheap salads and pastas, which I've been eating for a decade and a half.
This was one of the last affordable places to eat in the ever-vanishing East Village.
