Falai Panetteria Will Reopen As ... Falai Panetteria

Not long after fearing that Falai Panetteria had shuttered forever, we learn that the bakery-café should reopen at the end of next week. Grub happened by and found the space under construction today; Takashi Kobayashi was painting inside, and he said he has partnered with Iacopo Falai to revive the place. Kobayashi is a veteran of the kitchens at Falai restaurant and Caffe Falai, so he may make some tweaks to the food menu, but otherwise things should be tutto normale when the place opens up again — with a fresh coat of paint and some new fixtures.
