Sotto Sotto reopens just a gnocchi’s throw away from its original location
Less than two months after a Christmas Day fire destroyed Sotto Sotto, a longtime favourite dining spot of Yorkville’s elite, the landmark Italian restaurant is reopening just a couple doors north of its previous address. (Or, as loyal customer Drake might say, it started two doors over, now it’s here.) The new address is 120 Avenue Road, a space previously occupied by Dyne. Spokesperson Laura Fracassi says a grand opening is forthcoming, but the restaurant will have a soft reopening on February 19, which is today. “It’s still the same Sotto Sotto, but it’s bigger,” says Fracassi. Regulars can expect the same menu and even familiar servers—the restaurant has re-hired staff that had to be let go after the blaze. Until renovations are complete, Sotto Sotto will only be open for dinner service, Thursdays to Sundays. As of an hour ago, reservations were still available for tonight, but they are, unsurprisingly, flooding in.
