Carmellini’s Bar Primi Opens on Bowery

Last Monday, Andrew Carmellini opened Bar Primi, a new casual pasta shop on Bowery. The concept came into existence seven years ago, while Carmellini was still a chef at A Voce. However, due to a number of circumstances the restaurant did not end up opening. In January, when the space which used to belong to Peels (a neighborhood brunch spot) became available, Carmellini  seized the opportunity  to finally open the restaurant he had envisioned years earlier. Carmellini and chef/partner Salvatore Lamboglia have created a menu focused on traditional Italian pasta dishes, known as the ‘primi piatti;’ all made fresh and daily in house.
