Bonicelli Kitchen is putting the finishing touches on its new restaurant space at 1839 Central Ave. N.E. After an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, and a bit of a location fiasco. This will be the first brick and mortar location for owner Laura Bonicelli since she launched her meal delivery business in 2009. During Art-A-Whirl last weekend, Bonicelli Kitchen opened the patio and shared a few dishes. Cubanos, roasted vegetable sandwiches, herb and asiago fries were served as well a selection of beer and wine.

While there’s not much yet to say about the space, which is still under construction, we can talk about Bonicelli’s opening menu. It will offer a variety of small plates (meant to mixed and matched) that range from balsamic braised beef to spring pea soup, Vietnamese-style baby back ribs to farinata with burrata and roasted tomatoes. They’ll also offer large and small plate options of house-made linguini; cod fish tacos, salad nicoise, and fusilli pasta with pesto and tons of fresh vegetables. Look for their doors to officially swing open July 1st.
