|For lease sign at former Panozzo's Space|
I wanted to shoot you an email to let you know my husband and I are the new tenants in the former Panozzo's space. We read your blog daily and if you don't mind, we wanted you to be the first to announce it to the neighborhood.
We are local South Loop Residents whom live at Sky 55. My husband Bradley West, is an accomplished, classically trained Chef and I am a business professional. When the lease sign went up we jumped at the opportunity to share the food that we love with the community.
The new restaurant will be called Ameritalia and will serve chef driven American comfort food with an Italian influence to include items such as Braised Meatballs and Pepperoni, Stromboli's, Salads, Sandwiches, handmade pasta dishes, daily house-made soups, other specialties and CUPCAKES! The concept is fresh casual with seating for about 30 (to include outdoor patio seating NEXT year as we missed the application deadline for this summer). Folks will order at the counter and food will be delivered however, we will not have a serving staff so tipping will not be expected. Wine paired especially for our menu and beer will also be available. Catering options and delivery will also be available.
We are planning to open in early June and we will have a soft opening/celebration that we will announce to the community as opening day draws closer (we will definitely let you know).
We are so excited to serve our beloved South Loop community and hope to be big supporters of women in business (which is close to my heart) among other neighborhood causes.
It would be much appreciated if you could make the announcement and please let me know if I can provide further information.
Thank you and we look forward to interacting with you more in the future!
Holly and Bradley West
Sounds good to us! Best of luck as you move closer to opening!
