Sessanta, downtown heavy-hitter John McDonald's Italian restaurant with a Sicilian focus and '70s style, is mere days from opening in the Sixty Soho hotel. By Monday it should arrive, in the space that used to house Kittichai, with chef Jordon Frosolone, a veteran of Hearth and August, at the helm. The menu, as promised, leans on tradition (Frosolone's family is from Sicily), but doesn't stick to it too strictly. It includes Sicilian "street foods" like beef tongue sliders and fritto misto, as well as a whole section of crudos, and a handful of seafood-based pastas like fennel tortellini with sardines, pine nuts, golden raisins, and saffron. There are also almost as many entrees for two as their are for one, including a roasted chicken, a whole roasted fish, and a tomahawk steak. The whole menu is below.

Check back next week for photos of the place, which looks like it's shaping up to have the same sort of retro style that its sibling bar at the hotel, the Gordon does.
