"We've been looking for a location for our wedding catering," said John Spearman, chef and operations manager for Specialty Restaurant Group, which bought Mama Stortini's in 2006. "It's got a beautiful garden, gazebos, a fish pond."
Spearman said 60th Street Bistro will initially open just for lunch, serving sandwiches, soups, salads and a few entrees.
Never miss a local story.
"Our goal is to eventually do a full-blown restaurant," he said, mentioning brunch and dinners of "Northwest regional cuisine with an Italian accent."
