The new Italian restaurant at 37 Washington Ave, corner of Flushing, will open in early August. Italian comfort classics which most people expect (brick oven pizza, parmigiana, lasagna) will be on the menu but there will also be picks that expand the palate. A preliminary look at a preliminary menu shows reasonable prices.

Andrew Chew who managed Il Torchio through its opening and for most of its run has had a hand at creating the menu and will manage the new eatery. Chef Mario, one of Il Torchio’s former chefs, has also joined the venture. More soon.
