JOE & ESTHER DEQUATTRO, OWNERS OF PANE E VINO ON FEDERAL HILL, SET TO OPEN NEW RESTAURANT MASSIMO IN FORMER MEDITERRANEO SPACE
Joseph and Esther Dequattro, owners of Pane e Vino Ristorante & Enoteca, are pleased to introduce their new restaurant, Massimo, set to open in spring 2016 in the space formerly known as Mediterraneo.
“Pane e Vino offers very traditional, authentic Southern Italian cuisine, founded on my family recipes,” said Joseph DeQuattro, “Creating this new menu has given me the opportunity to experiment with some contemporary and innovative concepts, with influences from all over Italy.”
“Joe and I created Massimo with the goal of providing our guests with a unique dining experience, where great food and attentive service are fun and accessible,” said Esther DeQuattro.
Joe and Esther have engaged acclaimed restaurant designer, Kyla Coburn, to execute their vision for the space. The 200-seat restaurant is being completely renovated, and will offer an extraordinary space for private events. Massimo will feature inspired and locally sourced small plates and entrees, a seasonally curated cocktail menu, and an international wine list. Many of the wines will be sourced directly from small boutique winemakers across Italy.
Massimo will be open for lunch and dinner daily, as well as Sunday Brunch. Pane e Vino will remain open as the beloved classic Italian restaurant, anchoring the western end of Atwells Avenue.
