Giancarlo Quadalti to Spring Viola on New York

On Insatiable Critic today, Gael Greene gets the scoop on Giancarlo Quadalti’s latest restaurant: It’s to be called Viola and will have a Tuscan theme. Quadalti specializes in no-frills, authentic, moderately priced regional Italian restaurants, such as Teodora in midtown, Celeste on the Upper West Side, Bianca in the Village, and Fiore in Williamsburg. Viola is still in the planning stages, Quadalti tells us. “It’s not concrete yet. It’s still a little far away. We’re looking at three different locations.” The guy hasn’t produced a bad restaurant yet, so this definitely qualifies as good news. Or will, once the lease is signed.
