Ryan Angulo, the talented chef de cuisine who has helped Chris Santos make Stanton Social such a hit, is taking his knives and heading off to make his own show in Carroll Gardens. The as-yet-unnamed restaurant will be going in to 458 Court Street, down the street* from Frankies 457 Spuntino, and aims to serve upscale, well-developed food thats still kind of casualfine dining without being fine dining, Angulo tells us, mentioning Prune, Frankies, and San Franciscos Zuni Caf as models for the kind of thing he wants to do. We dont want to price anybody out. We want to make sure to get the neighborhood clientele included. The place is looking at a possible mid-March/early-April opening.
*Correction: The original version of this item said Angulo's restaurant would be across the street from Frankie's 457.
