‘Cervo’s’ Prepares to Serve Mediterranean Food on Canal Street

Posted on: May 2nd, 2017 at 9:26 am by

The successor to Pies ‘n’ Thighs on Canal Street is identified. It’s called Cervo’s and will open in just a few weeks.

Gutting and remodeling of 43 Canal Street has been underway for a couple months, preceded by nearly a year of dormancy. The most recent addition being the bay window onto the sidewalk.

As previously reported, Cervo’s is a new 45-seat Mediterranean seafood restaurant created by the team behind Hart’s in Bedford Stuyvesant, Nialls Fallon and Nick Perkins. Menu is apparently inspired by the Iberian coastline, with “sustainable seafood” and “vegetable-focused” good options.

Cervo’s opens later this month, beginning with five nights of dinner service and full liquor bar (pending the license). There will also be a back room offering semi-private dining with banquette seating for groups.

Pies ‘n’ Thighs closed in July 2016 after less than two years in business.
