Timone's, Top Chef: Boston cheftestepant Ron Eyester's Morningside pizzeria, is back in business after closing to make some adjustments. The restaurant re-opened Tuesday for lunch. In addition to pizza, Timone's now features a deli that offers a selection of Italian antipasto, deli meats, and take-out items.
Eyester broke the news on Twitter. Timone's closed for renovations in September.
"To be quite honest, the direction of Timone's hasn't gone according to plan," Eyester said when he announced the changes. "What I thought might have been a simplistic concept, emerged as being much more complicated. The realization of growing as a restaurant group became overwhelming, and I did not render the proper level of attention to Timone's as I should have.
"So, now it is time to press the reset button, and I honestly think that incorporating the deli concept as well as continuing putting out superior quality pizza will create the neighborhood pizza joint that we initially envisioned."
Complimenting the New York-style pizza, Timone's deli counter serves housemade roast beef, Italian beef, and corned beef, and additional deli items are sourced from "premium producers." Hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. Delivery is also available.
