M. Tangredi Restaurants Inc., the family-run company behind the two-year-old Tangredi’s Italian Kitchen on Elliston Place, is taking over the space left vacant when The Trace restaurant closed earlier this month. Chef-owner Michael Tangredi and family plan to reopen the trendy Hillsboro Village spot under the revised name Trace: Tuscan Bar & Grill. They are aiming for a June 1 debut.
The reincarnation of The Trace as an Italian eatery will make it a hat trick for M. Tangredi Restaurants, which is also in the process of launching Michael T’s: An American Grill in the former location of Country Life vegetarian restaurant on Division. The opening date for that project has been pushed back from March to May 1.
