Default Osteria Poggio

Has anyone heard anything about the new Italian restaurant coming to what was the former Lavinia's in Center Harbor. I found their fb page and it looks like a planned June 8th opening.

It looks good, but that will make four sit-down Italian restaurants between the Weirs and Center Harbor.

If you're over that end of the lake you really don't want to be going much father than Meredith on a hot summer weekend. That traffic is brutal!

This restaurant is partially owned by Kevin Halligan from the Local Eatery and Local Butcher in Laconia

I'm excited that this restaurant is going to re-open with Kevin at the helm. Just curious by the term "partial owner". Do you know who else is going to be involved?

Post Osteria Poggio

Hi all,

We were at Local Eatery about a week ago and some of the staff from Local Eatery will be working at Osteria Poggio. They indicated that prices would be somewhat comparable to Local Eatery (on a plated basis) and that the cuisine would be Italian/Italian inspired.

I think that the issue with both Lavinia's and Coe House were that they had trouble maintaining quality and providing differentiation in the market. I am certainly going to try Osteria Poggio when it opens. If it is anything like Local Eatery, it will be a great addition.

No I don't but my impression is it's a financial partner

i would expext all the eateries will have personel problems this season. I was at a restaurant with a friend near Newfound Lake Saturday night and they had no help. One cook and one waitress trying to handle the whole place, granted it was not a big place but it was busy none the less. Patience will be key to your dining experience this season.

Don't know all the details but I do know that Kevin is teaming up with Chef Kaylon Sweet. Kaylon studied Italian Cuisine at APICIUS International School of Hospitality in Florence Italy...also cooked at the James Beard Foundation. He has quite a passion for Italian cooking. They will be making fresh pasta and even have a wood fired oven. Cool stuff going on.

Iíve had Kaylonís food before, he is a very talented Chef, Iím looking forward to the additional boat accessible option for the summer.
