This is like the cute indie version of how Red Lobster and Olive Garden locations are smushing together and forming Frankenrestaurants: Tribeca Citizen reports that brick-oven old-timer Il Mattone, which shuttered after Sandy, has now reopened a dozen blocks south, joining up with Tre Sorelle. The blog says Carly Adams of Torly Kid noticed that Il Mattone has put up a sign, seen here, announcing the move. “Same chef,” it says, “same food.” Great, but now what about the name?
