Missing Caffe Cino Plaque on Cornelia Street

Pó Restaurant, at 31 Cornelia Street (near Bleecker Street) for 24 years, closed suddenly, and the bronze Caffe Cino plaque that was on the outside wall of the venue has disappeared. (Read more about Pó Restaurant’s closing on page 16.) The owners have sent an email stating that they know nothing about it. Caffe Cino was in the space for 10 years back in the 1960s. If anyone has any information as to where the plaque might be recovered, please let Magie Dominic know. She is the curator of the Caffe Cino archives at NYPL at Lincoln Center. Her email address is:
