Italian restaurant Nonna at 85th street and Columbus Avenue closed last week as the owners transformed it into a new restaurant: A.G. Bistro.
The new restaurant will serve “hearty rustic food,” a manager told us, with various French and Spanish dishes on the menu. It will have a soft launch on Monday, but may not offer full seatings immediately. We’ll post the menu when we receive it (or if you walk by next week and see the menu, send us a photo of it!).
An employee told us that Nonna had been around for about a decade. Ruth, one of our tipsters said she loved the meatballs there and the reasonable prices.
The AG in AG Bistro and AG Kitchen stands for chef Alex Garcia, a Cuban immigrant who specializes in Nuevo Latino cuisine.
Correction: The AG in AG Bistro apparently stands for “All Good.” Updated story here.
Thanks to Ruth, Carmelita and Jessica for the tips.
