Pasta-Slinger Puttanesca Will Return to Hell's Kitchen
Back in March we noticed that sprawling Hell's Kitchen restaurant Puttanesca had closed up shop on Ninth Avenue, and we were wondering who would take over this prime piece of real estate. It turns out that the Italian joint is set to return.
We hear the venue will be opening back up on July 9 after a floor-to-ceiling renovation that has added an extra wine and bar room with a cruvinet so wines will stay fresh and expensive labels will be available by the glass. The revamped venue will also feature a new menu by chef Claudio Cristofoli, who is coming over from Cipriani. Stay tuned for the opening at 859 Ninth Avenue.
