Yesterday, Forest Hills got a new fancy Italian joint. Tazzina opened at 102-15 Metropolitan Avenue, off 71st Avenue. DNAinfo previously reported that the chef, who has appeared on the TV show “Chopped,” moved the restaurant from its original location in Glendale to accommodate more patrons. This Forest Hills space seats around 50, with 15 more spots at the bar. An outdoor patio area will open next year.
There are two menus for both the bar and the restaurant. The focus is old-school Italian with a twist, and dishes include gnocchi, mussels, pastas, risottos, steaks and fish. (The bar menu will feature more small plates, including bruschetta and meatball parm sliders.) Check out awesome photos of the space and the opening night party right over here. GMAP
