According to an article in the Daily News, Caffe on the Green will be renamed Valentino’s on the Green and is looking to expand.
“I don’t know what to expect,” said Community Board 7 Chairman Eugene Kelty, who is worried about possible expansion on the site. “The other restaurant worked well and didn’t hurt other businesses.”
Kolaj said the group has numerous partners, including affiliates of Famous Familigia restaurant, the operators of the World’s Fair Marina restaurant. Well-known chef Don Pintabona will act as a consultant.
“We are hoping to expand and add a brunch fare,” Kolaj said.
