The rumors are confirmed! Tutto Il Giorno, the fave Italian eatery of such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Calvin Klein and Kim Cattrall will soon add a third new eatery to its roster with the opening of a restaurant in Tribeca.
“We will try to transport our Hamptons feel to New York,” says chef and partner Maurizio Marfoglia, who took over with Gabby Karan De Felice—Donna Karan’s daughter—after original founder Conde Nast honcho Steve Florio died in 2007.
The original Tutto Il Giorno opened in Sag Harbor in 2007 with Scott Conant in the kitchen. When Florio died, the restaurant restructured, bringing on Marfoglia and Karan De Felice. Conveniently, Tutto Sag Harbor is located just next door to Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Boutique. A Southampton restaurant on Nugent Street followed in 2011.
Marfoglia, a Lombardy native has garnered lots of accolades for his menu, which is seafood-heavy and features a list of homemade pastas, while the restaurant’s dining rooms has become a special haunt of the Hollywood and fashion crowds.
The chef is off to Naples in search of a new chef for Tribeca.
