Gio's Chicken Amalfitano opened on Friday. The takeout-only poultry joint serves from 5 p.m. daily, making it the perfect Sunday dinner option for those who try to eat at the adjacent Antico and find it closed for the day. The restaurants are both run by Giovanni Di Palma and his crew; they'll soon be joined by Bar Antico, a cafe/limoncello bar/gelateria that will open in the same area. The trio, along with traditional Italian street carts and pastry and pasta shops, will form Piazza San Gennaro.
