LOGAN SQUARE — One of the owners of Italian restaurant Osteria Langhe appears to be opening a restaurant in Quiote’s old spot on California Avenue.
A city permit for an incidental liquor license and outdoor patio was issued Feb. 13 for a new establishment at 2456 N. California Ave.
Aldo Zaninotto, co-owner and partner at cozy Italian restaurant Osteria Langhe at 2824 W. Armitage Ave., is listed as the manager of the limited liability corporation applying for the permit, Testaccio LLC. Testaccio is part of Rome.
Zaninotto and Alan Levin, an attorney also listed on the limited liability corporation, didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment Wednesday.
Quiote closed in August without explanation. It was later revealed the award-winning Mexican restaurant had been evicted after failing to pay $40,000 in rent. The restaurant had also been serving booze without a license, Patch reported.
Zaninotto worked at Savarin in River North and in wine sales before opening Osteria Langhe, according to an interview he did with VoyageChicago.
