Same concept, different location -- and by different location, we mean barely. Longtime Cherry Creek lunch spot Pasta Pasta Pasta vacated its original space at 278 Fillmore Street and moved just two blocks away, to 2800 East Second Avenue, on Fillmore Plaza.
Why the hopscotch jump? Owner Lisa Miller explains that the new location, which opened its doors today, is a larger space that better accommodates the restaurant's needs.
Miller, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Franco Tronchin (he's also the chef), is in the process of securing a liquor license; she hopes to begin serving a small selection of Italian beers and wines sometime next week.
Just before lunchtime today, big bowls of pasta and other dishes were arrayed prominently, ready to be served. Pasta Pasta Pasta diners can choose from a selection of daily Italian specialties -- specials, warns Miller, that frequently sell out.
The restaurant also has a small patio along the plaza, and while it's exposed to the elements, sun-shading umbrellas are on their way.
Pasta Pasta Pasta is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for lunch and until 6 p.m. for a drink (or take-out, upon request and if available), and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 303-377-2782.
