The guys behind the Mulberry Street destinations Torrisi Italian Specialties and Parm?Rich Torrisi, Mario Carbone, and Jeff Zalaznick?are bringing their reborn version of old-school red sauce fare to The High Line. Grub Street learns that the trio won the contract to open a restaurant adjacent to the new Whitney Museum at the foot of the High Line. Team Torrisi was selected out of about 20 applicants for the gig.
Details on the new restaurant are scant right now, but it will definitely be a full-service Italian restaurant at a price point somewhere between Torrisi and Parm. Located inside a Renzo Piano-designed glass box by the museum, it'll be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It should open sometime in late 2013 or early 2014, well after the already-incoming Torrisi spinoffs, Carbone and The Lobster Club.
