Matteo's to open by Feb. 8

Written by Melissa McCart on

matteosbarChef-owner Matt Cavanaugh of Matteo's at 3615 Butler St. in Lawrenceville confirmed the restaurant will likely open the weekend of Feb. 8. 

He has been working on the space that had formerly housed an insurance agency for the past year. "It has been a long haul," he said.  

This week the hood will be installed, which will allow him to work with staff and finalize the menu.

Mr. Cavanaugh solicited menu and cocktail suggestions on Facebook earlier this month.

The 50-seat Italian restaurant will feature steak and seafood, as well as a full bar.

Mr. Cavanaugh is an alum of the kitchen at Sarafino's in Crafton, where he worked for a decade.
