LGO Hospitality -- the creative team behind Postino, Chelsea's Kitchen, and La Grande Orange -- has just announced the upcoming June 3 opening of radioMILANO, a new neighborhood Italian spot located right across the street from Postino. The neon sign has been on for a few weeks now, so the inevitable has finally arrived.
Sharable entrees and large appetizers will include tuna carpaccio with lemon zest, spaghetti with meatballs, grilled tuna with white bean salad and golden raisins, and polpetone, Italian veal and wild mushroom meatloaf. Right now, there are only three things on the dessert menu, and I'm intrigued by the olive oil cake with housemade jam and clotted cream.
Cocktails look pretty delish: the Ginger Press, with handmade vodka, housemade ginger ale, and fresh lemon, sounds super summery, and the Milano, with Grey Goose l'Orange, Campari, and sweet vermouth, appeals to me, too.
With an exhibition kitchen and communal tables, radioMILANO will likely have the kind of kinetic vibe that Postino gets on a busy night -- which is pretty much every night, based on my random visits. (And I can only envision the line at the valet station!)
