Andrew Carmellini and the team behind Torrisi Italian Specialties aren’t the only ones to drop videos in anticipation of their forthcoming restaurants. The owners of Summit Bar in the East Village posted a short clip of the progress on their soon-to-open Italian restaurant, Prima Strada.
Construction seems to be coming along nicely on the space at 58 East 1st Street, which formerly was occupied by Elephant. The last time we spoke to these guys, they were hoping to introduce peppers and cucumbers to their garden plot this year. With a new Italian restaurant on the way, looks like they might want to add tomatoes to the list.
