Wine Bar Taking Scoozzi Spot in New Haven; Batali’s Tarry Lodge Coming

Wine Bar Taking Scoozzi Spot in New Haven; Batali’s Tarry Lodge Coming

The Tarry Lodge site in New Haven.

New Haven, recently chosen as the nation’s #1 foodie destination by Livability.com has some exciting restaurants in its future.

According to a New Haven Register story, already approved is a 74-seat Tarry Lodge, one of many iterations of restaurants run by Mario Batali and his partners, which include a Tarry Lodge in Westport. (Right, linguini with clams at Tarry Lodge in Wesport.)

It will be located at 278 Park St., in a space that has been vacant for seven years, and is expected to open in the fall.

“I’m excited to have Tarry Lodge join the New Haven restaurant community and serve the Elm City — a great addition considering the recent Livability.com piece about New Haven as a top foodie destination,” Patrick O’Brien, marketing coordinator at Yale Universty, University Properties & The Shops at Yale, said in an email to the Register.

At the former space leased to Scoozzi Trattoria and Wine Bar on Chapel—in part of the Yale Center for British Art building— Harvest Wine Bar, which has a sister restaurant in Greenwich. The tagline is “custom cuisine from farm to fork.” (Left, a Harvest burger.)

Scoozzi was in New Haven for more than two decades and closed in 2011. (The Scoozzi site in a New Haven Register file photo, below.)

Harvest is one of four restaurants owned by Vicente Siguenza and his family. Siguenza opened Cava in New Canaan about 10 years ago and also owns 55 Degrees in Fairfield, as well as Scena in Darien.
