The Torrisi guy's casual spinoff

Torrisi's next-door spinoff is taking over the lunch/casual dining reins from its parent (which is shifting to 15-20 course tasting menus), with quaint wallpaper surrounding a takeout counter, and chrome/red leather stools sidled up to a full bar. On top of the Parm (meatball, chicken, eggplant…), there'll be Ital-Am goodness like baked clams and chicken Francese, plus nightly specials including Italian Thanksgiving, i.e., a bunch of meatballs sitting on/around a table.
