Mo’s Grill, the restaurant owned by New York Yankee star Mariano Rivera and his partners, closed at the end of February with plans to re-open before the Yankee’s home opener. Instead the restaurant remained closed through the opening series with the Detroit Tigers and into the current Minnesota Twins series. The restaurant may remain closed through the rest of the month.
“Renovations don’t always happen on time”, said Joe Fosina, a business parter of Rivera with a stake in the restaurant. Fosina is projecting a May start for the reliever’s restaurant.
Fosina told Talk of the Sound there have been some changes in the ownership structure and some new ideas on how to position the restaurant away from a fine-dining steakhouse and make it more accessible. Some consideration was given to converting the restaurant into a Sports Bar but that idea was rejected, reported by Rivera himself.
For now there is a City of New Rochelle Building Permit posted in the window, the shades are drawn and the only savory aroma in the area comes from the Greco Pizza restaurant two doors down.
