This just in, kids. Ken Vedrinski, he of Sienna and Trattoria Lucca[image-1] fame, has inked a deal to put an Italian seafood restaurant in the Cigar Factory on East Bay Street. Ristorante Introdacqua, named after his grandmother’s hometown, will seat 85 in the dining room and 25 at the bar — obviously a much bigger space than the tiny Trattoria Lucca on Bogard Street.

We’re stoked to hear this little bit of tasty news, especially since the Cigar Factory is barely a mile from our offices.
