Marco Polo Gets a Facelift

Marco Polo Ristorante, the Carroll Gardens landmarks and reputed goodfella hangout, is getting a renovation. The 30-year-old institution will be closed through Sept. 17 while the interior is redone. I quick peek inside revealed that the entire place has been gutted save the murals on the wall. This does not upset me. The decor was the least of Marco Polo's charms. It was standard issue, red-sauce-joint gauche. It could do with a new look.

Dunno. "Closed for renovations" is generally a euphemism for "out of business." In most cases business owners will try to remain open while renovations are in progress, and if a business does reopen after being closed for renovations it's under different ownership.
