Ignacio Mattos In at Taavo Somer’s Planned ‘Hippie’ Restaurant


There’s word today about that “other venture” former Il Buco chef Ignacio Mattos is pursuing: According to Eater, he’s teamed up with Taavo Somer of Freemans and Peels for a “secretive” restaurant, in the works at South 2nd and Wythe Streets in Williamsburg. A tipster tells the blog it’s “supposed to be some kind of hippie place,” so we guess that means you can think about retiring the lumberjack plaid in favor of paisley caftans. [Eater NY]
