Back in 2009, Milton’s Abby Park became the first spot in the (then-dry) town’s small restaurant scene to score a license for a full bar. Now the team behind that modern American hot spot is readying for a new venture: Novara, slated to open in November inside a decades-old theater.
Abby Park’s executive chef Tony DeRienzo will put modern spins on Northern Italian cuisine at Novara, named for the province in the Piedmont region, though the team is still mum on most other culinary details. (A “large wine selection” is also promised, per a rep.) But we do know that it should be a pretty interesting-looking place. The 5500-square foot restaurant at 554 Adams Street in East Milton Square, just a few doors down from Abby Park, will inhabit a space formerly occupied by State Theater, a live performance venue, and then the Milton Cinema.
