With the smells and remnants of San Genarro all but a distant memory, Mulberry street is back to its lovely self. But, wait, what's that? It's the new awning and neon sign from Parm, the soon-to-be-opening restaurant from Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi.
The duo, who own and operate Torrisi Italian Specialities right next door, revealed the latest construction on their new space yesterday. We think it's pretty sneaky that they were hiding the much-hyped resto under plywood during the activities of the 10-day Italian feast, but we'll let it slide because everything these guys do seems to be heavy on delicious. Also, we're hoping to be invited over sometime.
Initially, Parm was set to open in late August but some set-backs have held up that process. Eater now reports that it will make its debut sometime in late September (which is, um, right now). The space will be taking over the lunch business from Torrisi and, in addition to its current menu, will feature some other items as well.
No final verdict has been delivered on the exact opening day but we'll be camped outside until they do.
