Family Recipe had been a critics’ darling ever since it bowed at 231 Eldridge Street back in 2011. Unfortunately, this love didn’t convert well enough into coinage, and Akiko Turnauer pulled the plug on the restaurant this past June.

Well, residents worried about the possible replacement endeavor may offer a sigh of relief this morning. It appears that the restaurateurs behind a pair of popular West Village favorites are looking to open more of the same on this side of the Bowery. Emanuele Attala, the chef-owner of Malatesta and its sister restaurant Malaparte, is joining forces with Ettore Pardossi and Giovanni Gentile to open the Spaghetti Incident at 231 Eldridge. (Yes, as in the Guns n Roses covers album) They’re listed on the Community Board 3 docket this month in consideration of a sale of assets, and to seek wine and beer privileges.

Spaghetti Incident will be a ten-table Italian restaurant with a maximum occupancy of forty patrons. Its hours are rather limited, meaning this appears to be a legit eatery – 12am closing times Sunday through Thursday, with 2am closing Friday and Saturday.  As for the menu, it’s as you’d expect.
