Father and son team Antonio and Patrick Corsi of Quattro Restaurants have announce an ownership change at Quattro on Fourth as a change to the restaurant’s official name. The restaurant is now named, Q4. Son Patrick has taken over ownership at the Kitsilano location and will carry on as managing partner. According to an interview with Scout Magazine, the younger Corsi feels the new name reflects his simplified, modern approach at the restaurant while honoring its roots.
“It will be nice to sit down with my dad at our Sunday night family dinners and not talk shop all night,” says Patrick. “These changes are strictly behind the scenes and our valued guests will enjoy the same Corsi hospitality at all three restaurants, along with all the dishes that have made our restaurants a success for a decade and a half.”
The newly named Q4 is one of Kitsilano’s oldest Italian restaurant having opened in 1994. The Corsi family launched Quattro at Whistler two years later, and in 2000 returned to the base of Lonsdale, where Antonio Corsi had his very first restaurant, to open Gusto di Quattro.
