With the recent sad news that Monty Qs may be kaput, we bring a silver lining with news that Saul Bolton (owner of Vanderbilt in Prospect Heights and the appropriately named Saul in Boerum Hill) just signed a lease on the space formerly occupied by Mezcals.
… [Bolton] plans to open an Italian place, focused on the food of Puglia, in June. “One of my partners is from that region and I have been playing around with some of the food, like homemade orecchietti,” he said. “I hope to travel there this winter.”
Puglia, located on Italy’s east coast, is indeed famous for its orecchietti (“little ears”) pasta and its seafood. In honor of the event, I’m going to try my hand at this.
