The Walker Evans Baker Restaurant Group who brought you Bar Nacional and Long Shot are expanding their Collins Square empire with an eccentric Italian entrance. Chiara – Italian by name and Italian by nature – are putting a contemporary twist on traditional pizzas and pastas. Head Chef, George Fowler, fresh off the boat from Michelin-awarded Pollen Street Social in London will be rolling out Italian flatbread pizze, antipasti and good old bowls of sauce-soaked priest stranglers (twisted ropes of pasta otherwise known as strozzapretti, FYI). Stand by for the opening on June 13.
