Above is the first rendering to go public of the highly-anticipated Indaco, the Italian concept by Macintosh and O-Ku restaurant group Indigo Road. A press release came out, announcing managing partner Steve Palmer and GM Andrew Fallis (currently the GM at Macintosh) are aiming to open the first week of August.
At the helm in the kitchen is Robert Berry, who started at downtown's SNOB before heading to places like Cookshop and Westend Bistro in New York. According to the release he'll be focusing on, "Rustic entrees, wood-fire pizzas, pastas, housemade salumi and house-cured sausages and meats will fill the restaurant's menu." There will also be a family-style option for $40, "primitive cooking techniques with modern interpretations" and the use of whole animals.
Onto the drinks. They're promising negronis on tap and housemade Italian sodas. In January, City Paper reported there will also be Italian beers on offer.
And for the quick Italian lesson: "indaco" translates to "indigo."
