Gio's Chicken Amalfitano opens tomorrow adjacent to Antico. The restaurant will offer only offer takeout for the time being and will open at 5 p.m. daily, serving until the chicken runs out (that's 100 servings a night). Look for expanded hours starting Friday, January 4, after the holidays are over.
Gio's menu features items including specialty chicken dishes served with roasted potatoes and focaccia, baked ziti, chicken soup, and ricotta cheesecake. Gelateria and cafe Bar Antico will open nearby in the spring; the eateries will form what owner Giovanni Di Palma plans to call Piazza San Gennaro.
