Are Bissonnette and Oringer ‘Wild-Ass’ Enough to Make It in New York?


The other day, Village Voice critic Robert Sietsema tweeted looking for suggestions on where to dine in Boston. We suggested Coppa, and what do you know? There he went! He thinks Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer will be a hit in New York City when they open a Manhattan branch of Toro this fall: “Their cooking is wild-ass enough that it’s likely to go over big in New York,” he writes. He also notes that the South End “looks a little like the gentrifying parts of Bed-Stuy.” [VV, Earlier]
