Bill Murphy, a former chef at Blue Angel, the Old City Continental and Chelsea Hotel in Atlantic City (where he wowed C. LaBan), is part of a team redoing the now-closed Valentino on the Square as an Italian small-plater/wine bar.
Name = Cicchetteria.
"Fun, sharable-type food, including pizzas," says Murphy. The idea is to get people in more than once a week.
Running the front of the house will be the dapper Andrea Luca Rossi, former director of operations at Girasole.
Opening = October.
