Staten Island restaurateur Paul Montella, the proprietor of Nucci’s North and coal-fired pizzeria Campagnia, which opened this week in Bay Ridge, is also the man behind New York’s first Sonic Drive-In. Montella tells the Staten Island Advance that the Charleston space is ready to go and awaits Buildings Department approval. The South Shore fast-food restaurant put out ads looking for employees over the summer. [SILive, Earlier]
