For One Night, Kanella Returns to Spruce Street

The Washington Square West neighborhood has missed Kanella since the Cypriot restaurant closed to move to Queen Village at the end of May. Chef/owner Konstantinos Pitsillides should open the new location within four weeks or so. But, WashWest is getting a taste of Kanella once again.

Kanella’s chef de cuisine Evan Butkovsky is joining up with Mercato’s Ryan McQuillan for a collaborative dinner on Tuesday, July, 28th. The Greek/Cypriot and Italian inspired tasting dinner (one sea, one people) will be held at Mercato, and will consist of three courses for $30.

When we first learned that Konstantinos Pitsillades was opening Kanella South at 757 S Front Street, it did not occur to us that he would close his successful BYOB location at 10th and Spruce. But as I dined at the Cypriot restaurant on Friday night, Pitsillades confirmed he was closing up shop in Washington Square West as of May 31st. The proud chef also promised that the new location would be the same but better. He was particularly excited about the large charcoal grill and a wood-fired oven that he would be experimenting with.

Pitsillades says the Queen Village Kanella will open in June with a full bar. The Spruce Street location is currently on the market. The 46-seat restaurant (with 22 additional seats outside) is on sale for $350,000.
