After we ran the initial story that ~PIZZETTA 211~ was opening a new Mediterranean-focused project on the corner, a follow-up to our piece adds that owner Jack Murphy, working with chef Mel Lopez, probably won’t be opening the project until summer 2017. The menu, which we mentioned will highlight pasta and seafood, will feature family-style options, with dishes from a wood-fired oven, and they are also aiming for it to be affordable.
Hoodline brings news that Osha Thai’s chef-owner Lalita Souksamlane is going to be adding a new concept to the Osha empire, opening LAO TABLE, focusing on the Laotian cuisine that is actually her heritage (she reportedly grew up in northeastern Thailand, bordering Laos). She will be converting a SoMa Osha Thai into the new concept. Look for an opening in mid-September. 149 2nd St. at Natoma.
