Mike Jeffs and Nicole Welsh, owners of the West End Italian restaurant Nook, are set for a Kitsilano expansion. Nook will take over the old Rossini’s spot at 1525 Yew Street, a pretty phenomenal address just up from Kits beach. I walked by today and the completely renovated restaurant looks very close to making its debut. Rumor is the grand opening is expected sometime this week. The menu is expected to be similar to the Denman location – think pizzas, pasta and salads – with more casual take-out lunch options too.
I hope to be wowed by the new location but, admittedly, I still long to see people dancing to live jazz and spilling out of Rossini’s in the middle of a Saturday afternoon as they did for almost 20 years.
