They say if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen, but if you're in search of Italian flavor without the guilt you may want to stay inside this one.
The Skinny Italian Kitchen, a new concept from Mancuso Restaurants Inc. (led by New York native and longtime Valley restaurateur Bobby Mancuso, who also owns Bobby's Restaurant and Jazz Lounge) is set to open in a 3,000 square-foot space at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 30, at CityCenter of CityNorth, adjacent to Blue Martini on the south side of High Street and 54th Street.
Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant will feature traditional Italian fare with a healthy twist using Mancuso's mother's sauces and recipes. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options will be available.
