Westside Italian chef Luigi Fineo is opening his newest project tonight, dubbed Luigi al Teatro. The coastal Italian option lands along 2nd Street in the home of, yes, a former theater that once was also used as a power station.
There’s no menu up at the moment for Luigi al Teatro, though Fineo tells Eater that the food will be almost entirely seafood-focused. There will be a small rotation of nightly red meat specials for those in need, but otherwise expect treats from the sea, pastas, and the like.
As for the space, expect a tall, moody affair with an open ceiling, stained-glass windows, and a long kitchen looking out into the dining room. That’s where Fineo will be tonight for the opening, which kicks off at 6 p.m. Meanwhile, tomorrow through January 11, Fineo’s other spot Osteria Venice West will be doing 20% off all food and drink to celebrate the opening of the sister restaurant.ansd
