Branzino — the popular Italian BYOB at 261 S. 17th St. that was shuttered in July 2016 after an arson fire — will come back, says owner Luan Toto.

Adam Zangrilli will handle an extensive renovation, using modern elements to update the traditional look. This time out, it will have a small bar linking the two dining rooms, Toto said.

Toto said the reopening would take at least several months.
