T's Tuscan Bar & Grill, the rustic-Italian restaurant filling the void left by the recently shuttered Trace, will open by Friday, says owner Michael Tangredi. All that remains on the punch list is a few plumbing issues.
Originally scheduled to open today, T's is the second nameplate in the Tangredi family's troika of Italian-themed eateries. The flagship Tangredi's Italian Kitchen has been running for two years on Elliston Place, and Michael T's: An American Grill is set to open in the former Division Street location of Country Life this spring.
T's will serve a menu of rustic-Italian-inspired cuisine, such as grilled mahi with crabmeat cream sauce, grouper parmesan and a variety of steaks. Located at 2000 Belcourt Ave. (phone: 386-0069), Tangredi's will serve lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
