Tre on Ludlow Street Returns Next Month with New Chef
The following guest post was written by Bowery Boogie reader Colton Moore.
Tre, the locals Italian restaurant on Ludlow Street, is set to reopen on Saturday, May 1. It’s the first time back open since the pandemic-related sidelining in December.
Returning diners will be surprised (and treated) to a new menu; rather than offering full dishes, Tre is pivoting to smaller plates in hopes of creating a more relaxed atmosphere. The updated approach is curated by its new chef, Paul Baker.
We caught up with owner Gino Piscopo who shared, “This year of change has taught us to get back to a simple way of life. It’s about eating, drinking and laughing with friends. We’re doing that: making things simple.”
New additions to the revised menu include: Grilled oysters with lemon almond pesto, Calamarata pasta with green garlic, asparagus and pistachio, and tri-colored marinated carrots. Piscopo maintains that the focus of dishes is on small bites and shareable plates.
Another addition to the fourteen-year-old Tre is a solo guitar player: a friend who hails from the south of Italy starting on Thursday night – a striking compliment to the meals.
One thing is for sure, plenty of neighbors are looking forward to the return of this locals favorite.
