Terroni empire expands with a new wine bar on Victoria Street
Construction is under way in the space beside Osteria Ciceri e Tria as the Terroni empire begins work on its new wine bar, called La Bettola di Terroni, slated to open early next year. Vince Mammoliti, manager of Terroni’s Queen Street location and brother of Terroni co-founder Cosimo, says it’s “an informal space where exclusive wines can be enjoyed at an enoteca featuring rustic food along with some Terroni classics.”
Despite it being a separate concept, the new bar will share a kitchen with Osteria, so expect a similar menu of rustic Italian cuisine (we’re pretty sure that the no-substitution rule will be in effect here, as well). Martini Boys reports that the chef at Terroni’s Los Angeles location will be creating the menu, and the interior will be a collaboration between Andrew De Rosa and Ralph Giannone, who also worked on Le Select, Bar Italia and the Queen West Terroni.
When asked to spill further details, Mammoliti says La Bettola is still largely a work-in-progress and tells us more information will be given out in the New Year.
