My grandfather owned this restaurant in the 50s & 60s and it was called the Original Mario.
Yay! Hi RT!
This was my favorite in the late 60's/ early 70's. Girlfriend lived just a block away at 25 W. 13th.
Hi my aunt and uncle owned the restaurant in the 1960’s
there name was Irene and Henry bracco they owned it with a cousin Virginia and Renato do you know anything about this please let me know if you do…
West 13th Street in the 1920s between 6th and 7th Avenue was known as a block that housed a few speakeasies; I suspect Mario’s served that purpose before it became a bona fide restaurant in the 1930s.
Edith Halpert, one of the first women art dealers, ran her “Downtown Gallery” at 113 West 13th (same block) and liked to stop in sometimes. A lively block: 153 West 13th housed the offices of the “The Dial,” the avant-garde literary magazine, from 1920 to 1929.
