A new American restaurant with an Italian flair will move into the Main Street location that was previously home to Gratto Italian Tapas.
The new restaurant, flour + wine, will specialize in Neapolitan, wood-fired pizza and creative pasta dishes. Owner Michael Vai of Plainfield said the new restaurant will keep some of the appearance of Gratto, but will also display a modern, yet rustic look with blackboard walls for kids to write on. Vai said there will be wine, craft beer and a creative cocktail list.
Vai took over the location on Wednesday, and the restaurant is expected to open in mid-May. Vai’s, son Anthony Vai, is in California going through training to make Neapolitan pizza. Brian Goewey, a chef and partner at Ivy in Wheaton, will also be a chef and partner at the new restaurant.
