This Friday, Il Buco Will Spawn Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria


In April, Iacopo Falai opened Bottega Falai, an Italian food shop next door to Caffe Falai. This Friday, the owners of Il Buco will follow suit with Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria.

The New York Times reports that the shop, located on the corner of Bowery and Great Jones Street, will sell pastas, coffee, condiments, oils, vinegars, pastries, cured meats, and gelato, which will be made in-house. After Labor Day, part of the space will open as a wine bar, complete with a wood-burning oven. Which is one very good reason to look forward to the onset of the kind of weather that inspires people to romanticize burning wood.
