Enzo Fargione one step closer to opening ELISIR

By Tim Carman

Former Teatro Goldoni chef Enzo Fargione originally announced his ELISIR project in August, saying he had signed a letter of intent to open his own restaurant in the same downtown building as Central Michel Richard and Ten Penh. Four months later, Fargione has finally signed his lease.

The reason for the delay? The building's owners, the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, had a lengthy review process for every change to the lease, even the most minute ones, Fargione explains.

"Each time we had a question, the contract had to go through six or seven layers of approval," the chef/owner says. "It was painful."
