More on La Famiglia



In today's Table Talk column in the print edition I talk more about the new La Famiglia, which finally has a permanent phone number. (See previous post.)

The place has generated a lot of interest for two reasons: first, Brasserie Tatin, which it replaced, had a following; and second, Boccaccio in Little Italy, where most of La Famiglia's staff came from, had even more of a following....

My column also includes some reopening news.

And then there's the print edition of last week's Top 10 for your amusement. This was actually a fairly timeless one (Italian cold cuts), but next week's (a recap of Mardi Gras places) will take all my fudging skills.

The main reason I link to Top 10: the Print Version is so  you can see which comments made it in.

It's funny what happens unexpectedly during a transition.

A friend of mine has lived a couple of floors above the restaurant space in the building for some time. Now that La Famiglia is open he/she noticed that the noise level has increased dramatically, especially from the kitchen. In fact when she/he complained, the apartment management did not delay in moving him/her to a different apartment (with a much better view!) for no increase in rent.

EL (or anyone else out there)--

Is LaFamiglia in the same space that once occupied that french restaurant Jeaniers (sp?)..???

Yes, Donny B. It was Jeannier's before it became Brasserie Tatin a few years ago.

Yes it is, Donny B

Thanks. I haven't been up to that area in years. That's a fantastic part of the city, one of my favorite parts of town to drive through.
