Villa Pacri, the offshoot of Pacri in St. Barts that counts the Bagatelle team as partners and Fabio Trabocchi as consulting chef, got a shout-out in this week’s Openings, but you’ll have to wait a bit: We’re told construction delays (the place is going to have roaring fireplaces, after all) have pushed back the launch till later this month. Meanwhile, another splashy Italian newcomer, Lavo, will celebrate its opening tonight with a private party that Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Ciara, Lennox Lewis, and some socialites and reality-TV types are expected to attend. The much-hyped Las Vegas import opens to the public tomorrow.
