The sad erasing of Union Square staple Chat 'n Chew is nearly complete. Signage is up for Little Sal's Italiano, its replacement from the same mister. Owner Andrew Silverman has promised that the new restaurant "will be a home-style, culinary driven neighborhood Italian joint," with a $35 prix fixe menu that includes brick chicken, short rib bolognese over fresh pasta, and a cockles and pistachios arugula pistou. The project was originally supposed to be a pop-up, then Silverman said he would simply go for gold with a full blown restaurant by the end of September. Nothing seemed to be going on behind that signage so it might be a while.
