Pava, Newton

Stopped by today--it opens in a week. I hadn't realized Susan Regis would be the chef--excellent news in my book. Menu looks good, contemporary Italian.

    1. The internet says: 1229 Centre Street, Newton Centre

      1. It is connected to their store called TESS. There is one in Cambridge too. Tess Enright and her husband Carlos Pava are opening the restaurant. It is a passion/love of theirs. Should be a welcomed addition to the generally bland offerings of Newton Centre. Also, they have one of those fancy brick oven stoves.

          Hmm, I'm guessing it will be way pricey then.

            Just what I was thinking. If it's the restaurant version of TESS, it will be a wierd combination between Cambridge nerd-cool and impossibly splurgey. That's not a word, but you know what I mean.

              Yeah, what's the entree equivalent of a blumarine sweater??

        2. Licorice-cured salmon, perhaps? One thing I noticed on the menu...but I like Susan Regis's cooking, personally.

            What else is on the menu? I googled but came up short.

            Heh heh. blumarine sweater. Nice one, missykins.

          2. Gourmet pizzas, I remember an octopus dish that sounded good, house-cured meats, lotsa little fancy ingredients like anise hyssop. Not unlike the kinda things she was doing in the Monday Club Bar, but Italian-slanted. Open for lunch, brunch, dinner.
