Drawn to what he views as Italy's and Puerto Rico's shared emphasis on "family" (wait, so Puerto Ricans murder their simpleton siblings while they're fishing, too??), the restaurateur behind the rum-drenched Latineria known as Coco is opening Amoremia Cucina Italiana, bringing a bevy of boot-based shareables to a 50-seat den of dark wood, azure walls, mahogany benches, and Italian knickknacks from teapots to antique pasta makers, because it's not like Ron Popeil has that much going on these days anyhow.
