There’s no end in sight to the continuous barrage of burger joints, designer steaks and kobe clubs. It’s a carnivore’s dilemma…and no, I’m not speaking of ethics. Oh no. I’ve had many a fling with foie gras and my way with veal, so I’m most certainly game for another chop shop.
First things first: Angelo & Maxie’s has taken over the kitchen store next door with plans for a July, Angelo & Maxie’s Grill. Of course, this means August. Not unlike Smith & Wollensky’s Grill, the menu will offer burgers & a host of other casual, less expensive grub. But the real coup, will be the endless procession of flat screens and late-night hours. Might there finally be a sports bar with decent food – why has this concept not caught on yet? But wait, there’s more…
The Scotto posse, who’ve been feeding the business lunch set at their midtown Fresco by Scotto and Fresco on the Go, have set their sights on the Financial District: 10 Hanover Square to be exact. Anthony Scotto tells us come November, the family will open another Fresco by Scotto outlet, this one a whopping 8,000 square foot space with more modern decor than their Tuscan-designed flagship.
