ECHO PARK — Get over your fear of carbs. A new Italian restaurant on Echo Park Avenue plans to dish up pizza, pasta and house-baked bread and biscotti.
It’s been nearly a year since work began on gutting a brick building in the 1500 block of Echo Park Avenue and transforming it into a new Italian restaurant. Now, as construction appears to be entering the final phases, the owners of Etti, as the restaurant will be known, are searching for a chef to oversee operations. A job posting that recently expired on Craigslist said the restaurant owners are looking for for a chef/kitchen manager says that Etti will “merge traditional Italian gastronomy with the sensibility and seasonality of Southern California.”
The menu for the 88-seat restaurant will include “friti, antipasti, pizza, pasta, contorni, and main courses, as well as house-baked bread and biscotti.” Italian wines and California craft beers will also be served.
Etti is scheduled to open this winter or next spring.
