Status: Open
Almost a year after Hurricane Sandy destroyed Barbarini Alimentari, a new Italian restaurant, Barbalu, has opened in its place. The owners, husband-and-wife team Stefano Barbagallo and Adriana Luque, were half of the team behind Barbarini, and held onto the place.

The restaurant will eventually seat 120, but for now just a small 30-seat section is open. The classic Italian menu has salads, sandwiches, pastas, and a few meat entrees like veal scaloppine and oven roasted monkfish. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, from 10 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. every day.
