  1. search for Po under the Manhattan boards. there is considerable discussion. :)

    1. Yup, and there was a discussion back in September regarding the opening of this restaurant (that's how long it's taken)

        I also heard Alex Garcia will be taking over the reigns at porchetta. he was spotted checking out the exterior with the owner, is this just a rumor? Does anybody know anything about this?

      2. Was at paninoteca for a little food this evening and the Smitty sign is finally down. The door was open and the place is still heavily under development but I saw a large bar in place.

        Soon maybe...
