‘Spaghetti Incident’ Annexes Adjacent Eldridge Street Store for New Pasta Shop

Posted on: September 13th, 2017 at 5:02 am by

In the two years since its inauspicious debut, Spaghetti Incident – an homage to the Guns N Roses covers album of same – has garnered quite the fan following on Eldridge Street. It’s seemingly as beloved as its predecessor here, Family Recipe.

Now the forty-seat restaurant is ready to expand, and not too far away, either.

Ownership recently annexed the space next door at 231 Eldridge Street (most recently a dry cleaner) with the goal of take-out service. Pushing the ever-popular spaghetti cones for those on the go.

“We’re opening a spot just for take-out,” a restaurant spokesperson tells us. “The popularity of our Spaghetti Cones is growing every day, so we decided to have a space dedicated to them – and deliveries too.”

The added space – dubbed the Spaghetti Incident Pasta Shop – will also serve as a small retail outfit to sell its homemade sauce and other imported ingredients from Italy.

No concrete opening date just yet, though.

The original restaurant, meanwhile, is to remain a sit-down only establishment.

Spaghetti Incident entered the crowded scene in May 2015. The intimate, yet approachable restaurant is a joint venture between Emanuele Attala, chef-owner of Malatesta and its sister Malaparte, and Ettore Pardossi and Giovanni Gentile.
