Here's something else to anticipate from the up-and-coming Sylvan Thirty mega-development: According to Bisnow, chef Daniele Puleo will open Bottega Italia in December.
Bottega will be an "Italian- and Napa Valley-inspired eatery, market, coffee, and wine bar" that will feature "a full-service Lavazza coffee bar," "a deli counter and a market with pastas, olives, cheeses, and charcuterie, as well as grab-and-go options of specialty prepared foods." The cafe portion will showcase pizza and "made-to-order sandwiches and salads." It will also feature "more than 350 wine labels and multiple locally brewed beers on tap." Some will remember Puleo from Daniele Osteria, the subterranean Oak Lawn restaurant that closed back in 2011 (the space now houses Si Lom); he and his wife currently own Inzo Italian Kitchen, which has two locations in Fort Worth and Roanoke.
The first Sylvan Thirty tenant, hippie-leaning grocery store Cox Farms Market, opened back in April; additions yet to come will include residential lofts, a yoga studio, a butcher and several restaurants, including the highly anticipated ramen shop Ten from Tei-An owner Teiichi Sakurai.
