Virginia's reopens after December fire next door

A late-night fire on Dec. 23 temporarily put two restaurants — Fiaschetteria Pistoia and Virginia'sout of commission here on 11th Street near Avenue C.

Vinny & O, who shared the photos on this post, reported that Virginia's reopened this past Friday night for the first time since the fire, which started next door at Fiaschetteria Pistoia.

Meanwhile, Fiaschetteria Pistoia remains closed (they were originally hoping to reopen last month).

More than 60 firefighters battled the blaze. (A cause has not been revealed.) There weren't any reports of injuries, though parts of the kitchen and dining room at Fiaschetteria Pistoia, which debuted in 2017, were damaged.

The sign on the door notes: "Unfortunately, because of a fire, we will be closed for renovations for a bit more time."

Fans of Fiaschetteria Pistoia's Tuscan-style food can still visit their new outpost at 114 Christopher St., near Bedford Street that opened in the beginning of January.
