DINER: “Campagnolo Roma” Nears End Of Construction With Aim To Open Next Week

May 6, 2011.

by Andrew Morrison | I spent some of the morning taking a look at the almost-finished Campagnolo Roma restaurant. If all goes according to plan, they aim to be open at some point next week. We broke the news of its coming back in March:

Tom Doughty and chef Rob Belcham of Refuel and Campagnolo took possession of 2297 East Hastings this afternoon. The pair aim to open a new restaurant in its place called Campagnolo Roma. It will be based on the original Campagnolo concept and brand, only the fare will be more regionally specific to the Eternal City of Rome (expect a battery of flatbreads, real deal Amatricianas and Carbonaras, et cetera). The 35 seat space (plus another 8 on the patio) will replace the now defunct Caribbean Hot Pizza Express (no loss there) and is directly opposite Red Wagon. It will go under the reno knife immediately, and will open in May at the earliest. Ted Anderson (currently at Refuel) will be the opening chef.

Take a look at the menu here and here and the shots below. Lovely wooden paneling reminiscent of the original Campagnolo on Main, plus the green of Refuel. They also picked up the two cushy banquettes from DB Bistro and the sweet leather chairs from Lumiere. Looking good!

    Whoever decided to put wood on the wall near a sink has never cleaned a toilet-it will be a filthy mess inside a few weeks that’s why we use tile in most place-easy to clean.

    I welcome more culinary breadth in this wonderful neighborhood of ours. I think we should market this chunk of East Hastings as ‘foodie-ville’ from Gourmet Warehouse at Clarke and Hastings to the wonderful delis and shops up to Slocan – including Donald’s, Como Market, Rio Friendly Meats, The Polish Meat, Pastry and Sausage deli, Pinetree Cake and Pastry House, Ugo and Joe’s Deli, Bianca Maria Deli, Sweet Tooth, East Village Bakery, Schokolade, Skye’s Nut House,The Red Wagon, El Barrio, Rondel Cafe, Tentatsu Sushi and so many more…. Long may we reign.

    Mmmm…Menu looks scrumptious. Can’t wait till it opens. Although I can’t decide if tiramisu less than 1/2 a block from my apartment is a good thing or a bad thing…
