Back in June, Grub Street reported that the name of this new place will be called L'Apicio. According to Eater: "Chef Gabe Thompson, of L'Artusi and Dell'Anima, will create an 'Italian inspired' menu, and Joe Campanale will be in charge of the wine and cocktails."
As we've noted in our previous posts about the space ... Not familiar with Dell'Anima? (Like us!) Here's a summary via New York magazine:
This is what happens when a former Babbo sommelier and an ex–Del Posto kitchen whiz get together and open an unassuming little trattoria: mobs of salivating foodies and goggle-eyed scenesters clamoring to get in.
Meanwhile, this tree obscures the signage over what appears to be the main entrance...
Let's hope that the tree doesn't meet with any accidents...

I like these guys, at least early on at Dell'Anima, I had a few very good, very chill meals. The staff have always been friendly, I think there are worse restauranteurs to have in the neighborhood.
Doesn't look like the place will be affordable. Probably more tourist pricing, and then never find out about the place until it's closing.
Man, what I wouldn't give for a diner in this area. No, not the new Veselka, nor Bowery Diner, but a real diner with prices for those of us who live nearby.
Daddy EV - when I grow up, I want to be a scenester.
Dell'Anima & L'artusi are two of the better Italian spots in the west village. Dell'Anima has a really laid back vibe, the chefs are super friendly and an odd side note is that they actually have a Wu Tang Clan sticker above the kitchen...it's hardly a tourist spot but it is delicious.
