Charleston Group's fourth restaurant
(David Hobby/Sun Photographer)
After I got a second e-mail asking what I knew about the Charleston Group's new restaurant (which was nothing), I e-mailed Tony Foreman. (The photo is of him three years ago.) Here's what he sent back:
We should be open (God, contractors and artisans willing) sometime toward the end of summer.
Have you heard anything recently about Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf’s next project? Last I heard it was going to be directly across from Charleston in Harbor East, and was supposed to be a larger version of Petit Louis. I also heard it was supposed to open this past winter/spring. Obviously with the way restaurant construction and planning go, opening on time was never going to happen, but I haven’t heard a word about the restaurant in a long, long time.
I was wondering if you had the scoop on what looks to be Tony Foreman's latest venture--Osteria? I had dinner at Lebanese Taverna last night, and noticed that space next to it has permits up for a restaurant called Osteria; the owner of the space was listed as Tony Foreman. Given that as osteria is traditionally a wine bar, and Tony is known for his wine knowledge, I'm hoping we can look forward to a great (and desperately needed) wine bar!
As soon as I learn anything more, I'll post it here and in my Table Talk column, which appears Wednesday in the food section.
