Earlier this afternoon we stopped in at Locanda Verde, the forthcoming casual-Italian restaurant helmed by Andrew Carmellini, to check in on progress. Following the first mock service last night, a staff-only affair, the public opening is now looking likely for the end of next week (reservations are being accepted as of May 26). In the meantime we bring you some construction photos for your anticipatory pleasure.
