Bocconcini Italian Eatery update

I’m getting the feeling that people are very excited for the opening of Nathan Toubia’s new restaurant, Bocconcini Italian Eatery, which he’s putting into the old Sugar Sisters space at 4811 E. Central. Every day I’m getting calls and e-mails about it. “The sign is up!” “The paper is off the windows!” “There are chairs inside!”

Toubia tells me that he plans to officially open the restaurant on Wednesday. Once he does, hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

In the meantime, check out the menu, which Nathan shared today. It looks good. I’m particularly excited about the toasted homemade ravioli and the pork saltimbocca, featuring thin sliced pork tenderloin topped with prosciutto di Parma in a Marsala sauce served with polenta and broccoli raab.
