Dimitri Pauli and Gherardo Guarducci are expanding once again. The dapper restaurateurs — who own Sant Ambroeus restaurants in the Village, in Soho, on the Upper East Side and in Southampton, as well as cafes in the Regency hotel and Sotheby's along with Casa Lever and Felice restaurants and wine bars — are opening another Sant Ambroeus cafe this summer. The newest entry, to be designed by Bonetti / Kozerski Architecture and Design DPC, will be located in the Hanley building at 1136 Third Avenue. It will have silver travertine floors and walnut paneled walls, and offer a grab and go concept. "The neighborhood holds special meaning, as it’s the home of New York's first Sant Ambroeus restaurant,'' says Pauli. "We’re pleased to offer our specialty coffee and traditional Milanese fare in the new location."
