During the past month we’ve noticed that Quattro Gastronomia Italiana, the 160-seat, bi-level Northern Italian restaurant that the Trump Soho imported from South Beach, has been staffing up via Craigslist. Piemonte-born chef Fabrizio Carro is still onboard, and now, a year after it was first expected to open, the restaurant has put out hiring calls for hosts, servers, bussers, and bartenders; a manager; cooks and pastry cooks; as well as a pasta-production cook to man the La Monferrina pasta machine. We’re told the opening date of the “luxurious Italian dining room” (per design firm Studio A) is April 9, and Trump Soho’s website says there’ll also be a D.J. lounge named Bazaar, “created by the team behind South Beach’s hottest night spots,” as well as a seventh-floor pool deck called Bar D’Eau. While you’re waiting, reacquaint yourself with the eating habits of the restaurant’s operators, Eric and Donald Trump Jr.
