Artist Formerly Known as Loft 610
I have heard good things, bad things, weird things and then better things from all sorts of people about their experiences at Loft 610. So much back and forth, I swear it sounds like a Dr. Seuss rhyme. Now the Levy management group that operates Loft 610 will close and reopen as an Italian restaurant.
Portovino Ristorante, set to debut in mid-November, will feature a warm, casual atmosphere and traditional Italian dishes – from pastas, entrees, salads and sandwiches to pizzas prepared in an authentic brick oven. To complement the cuisine, the restaurant’s beverage program will include Italian wines, liquors and beers.
The Mutual of Omaha subsidiary that owns Midtown Crossing has spent a lot of money on the Loft 610 space. With deep pockets, it is easier to make changes and start anew. Time will tell if it works.
