Italian Pop-Up Hopes To Fill the Hole Chat N Chew Left

The owners of the dearly departed Chat 'n Chew now hope to fill the hole left in many New Yorkers' hearts with an Italian pop-up called Little Sal's. Co-owner Ethan Silverman (the son of Barbounia restaurateur Andrew Silverman, who opened the restaurant) tells DNAinfo: "[Chat 'n Chew] lost some of it's energy, and now we're getting it back...It's going to be a Chat 'n Chew on steroids."

Ethan compares the concept to Parm, calling it "family oriented" with a menu of Italian classics like chicken and eggplant parm, pastas and wines by the glass. (which sounds entirely different from the comfort food Chat 'n Chew was known for.) The pop-up is slated to open in two weeks, and if it does well Silverman hopes to make it permanent.
