The next restaurant from Paul Kahan and One Off Hospitality is moving along swiftly. Kahan was on-site in the former Cipollina space next to Big Star today, and although he isn't ready reveal too many details about the project yet, he did mention a couple tidbits.
The new 40-seat project will be "Big Star-esque," he says, and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, which will give eaters a unique all-day dining opportunity from one of the nation's top restaurateurs. Kahan and the team behind Blackbird, Avec, Publican, Big Star, Violet Hour and Nico Osteria are shooting to open this next spot in early August.
The space—as well as the Big Star expansion next door—are buzzing with electrical, duct, and structural work, revealing beautiful white-washed tin ceilings and walls in the former Italian deli and coffee spot.
Stay tuned for more details on one of the year's most anticipated projects.
