Segundo Tinishanay and Bolivar Perez, who have a combined 50 years of experience cooking behind the line in kitchens throughout the ever-expanding Il Mulino empire, are leaving the restaurant group* to open Il Falco in July or August at 21-50 44th Drive in Queens.

In addition to decades of making food for regulars and power-player clientele, Perez cooked for Presidents Clinton and Obama, who had lunch at the West Village original in 2009. LIC Post reports that Il Falco, which has no business connection to Il Mulino, will serve a mix of Northern and Southern Italian food when it opens later this year.
