After several years of quietly making pies on Atlantic Avenue, the team at Neapolitan pizzeria Sottocasa is busy with expansion plans. You may recall that the team recently signed a lease for a space in Harlem, but before that location even opens, Williamsburg may get an outpost. The restaurant's name is on Community Board 1's docket for tonight, vying for a license for a prime spot along the southern border of McCarren Park, where Italian restaurant Cu Cooper 29 operated until this spring. The space already has a brick oven, so Sottocasa's owner and Keste alum Luca Arrigoni might not have to ship a two ton oven over from Italy like he did for his original location.
Also on the docket tonight, the much anticipated Brooklyn outlet of ramen-ya Ichiran, place called Hummus Market, and an LLC by the name of Mozzarella Holdings.
