Alessandro Borgognone, owner of the New York Times four-star restaurant Sushi Nakazawa, has a new restaurant in the works. He's not revealing many details yet, but he tells the Daily Meal that he's "bringing in another great chef" for this one. This lines up with what he told the Post back in February, that he was working on "poaching" another chef like he did Daisuke Nakazawa. He says he plans to "stay with seafood" at the new venture, although it's unclear whether this will be in the form of sushi or some other type of cuisine. Borgognone, of course, has a background in Italian dining, with years spent working at his family's restaurant, Patricia's, in the Bronx. In any case, he promises that "like Sushi Nakazawa it's not going to be pretentious." No word yet on where or how soon the new place will open.
The restaurateur says he'll reveal more "in a few weeks," and in the meantime Eater has reached out to Borgognone for details. Stay tuned.
