Carroll Gardens' Legendary Joe's Perette Undergoes Construction

Carroll Gardens culinary legend, Joe's Superette (or Joe's Perette, as it's known by its mutated sign)—home of superlative prosciutto balls—is wrapped in scaffolding. The building is being refurbished for the first time in, well, forever. "If I owned the building, I would have done it long ago," said the worker inside. What? Joe's doesn't own the building? They're renters? A shiver just went down my spine.
