Jason Dady has opened his latest restaurant venture: Tre Enoteca in the Alley at 555 W. Bitters.
The Italian restaurant is akin to the original Tre Trattoria on Broadway, but there are differences, Dady says.
Like the original, the pasta is made in-house, but at the new restaurant, there’s “a fancy extruder,” he says, and it allows the kitchen to use semolina flour to make a denser pasta.
Plus, there’s a wood-burning oven for the pizzas and large lounge that will feature a series of Old and New World wines as well as signature cocktails.
Tre Enoteca is only open for dinner at present, but more hours will be added soon.
Dady, who also owns Two Bros. BBQ Market, the Duk Truck and B&D Ice House, is always busy. So, though he has just opened Tre Enoteca, he’s hard at work on another project, the Shuck Shack, an oyster bar set for Grayson Street. That plan was to have the Shuck Shack opened by now, but work on the property and work with city officials have delayed that.
At Shuck Shack, expect at least three oysters from the Northeast and three more from the Pacific Northwest.
Dady got some shucking practice on Monday night. He served up oysters on the half shell during a special dinner at Feast that brought the chef and his team together with chef Stefan Bowers, who once worked for Dady.
