Bruno's looking at late August

An update on the revival of Bruno’s Little Italy in the Mann Lofts at 310 Main St.: Owner Gio Bruno, son of founder Jimmy Bruno, said he hopes to open the restaurant “before the end of August,” and not before “everything is right.”

Construction is running behind thanks in part to the building contractor’s decision to place a support pole where Bruno had planned to put his pizza oven. The sidewalk for the outside dining area has been poured, however. The patio will seat 24 and the restaurant will have 68 seats at tables and seven in the bar.

The new Bruno’s will be open for dinner only initially to work out any kinks and then will open for lunch. Lunch will be Monday through Friday, dinner Tuesday through Saturday. Coming back to the menu: Spaghetti Caruso, spaghetti topped with fried chicken livers in a marinara sauce, a favorite dish of Hillary Clinton’s brother, Hugh Rodham. Bruno has also asked Paula Dempsey of Dempsey Bakery to provide a gluten-free French bread to substitute for pizza dough for gluten-averse diners.
