Many of you have emailed me in the last two days after trying to make a reservation at Il Torchio, only to be told the ownership had changed. This seems like a bizarre turn of events. Il Torchio, which opened less than a year, definitely had its growing pains. Many of you left comments about the price points, service and quality in the first month or so, but they really seemed to get their game together. In recent months, many people have emailed me and commented on how good the food and atmosphere were. And that makes this changeover all the more curious.
MARP, in response to my email asking what was up, said that they only knew that Il Torchio's owners decided they no longer wanted to own both the building and the restaurant. (And as for Los Pollitos, they brought on a business partner, hence the name and menu change.)
Anyone one dined under the new ownership yet?
