Last Thursday, we noticed that Lucali Kenmare appeared as an agenda item on the upcoming Community Board 2 meeting. No one was at the restaurant to confirm at the time, but on Friday an employee at the original Brooklyn Lucali pizza joint told Grub Street that a branch of the swarmed Carroll Gardens spot was indeed making the move to Manhattan.
Like the new spinoff restaurant in the South Slope, Giuseppina's, (now in the works for a year and a half) this branch will be run by founder Mark Iacono's brother. Stay tuned for more after they appear before the board later this month.
