Elizabeth Falkner Lands at Corvo Bianco on the UWS

New, 55 comments

After a seven-month stint at Krescendo in Boerum Hill, celebrity chef Elizabeth Falkner has signed on to open Corvo Bianco, an Italian restaurant on Columbus Avenue. Ms. Falkner tells Grub Street about the move from Brooklyn to the Upper West Side:

I left because I had differences, which will become much clearer when I get to Corvo Bianco. This is not just pizza and pasta: I am excited to cook a bunch of food. It's still coastal Italian, but a bigger restaurant and a bigger menu.
She originally signed on as a "dessert and brunch consultant," but decided to take over the kitchen when original chef Andrea Cobbe left because of a family emergency. Falkner is also working with Holland America as a part of the cruise line's culinary council.

Corvo Bianco is slated to open in July with a space that has "a big skylight like Nomad, and a wall of all reclaimed wood.''
