Chicago restaurateur Arnie Lockwood is looking to lead the revitalization of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s New River (on the south side across from Smoker Park) with the planned December opening of Nu Ristorante Italiano.
The 6,800 square foot restaurant will seat 400 inside and out. Guests will be able to arrive by boat, foot or car. No chef has been named as yet, but we are told the menu will feature Italian dishes with seafood that guests will be able to select fresh as well as steak and pastas. Near the courthouse and Vinnette Carroll Theater, Nu will open daily at 11 a.m.---Lily Rano [EaterWire]
