Gothamist was excited to see fast-moving construction today at the new site of Westville East on the southwest corner of Avenue A & 11th Street. Formerly Italian eatery Angelo Della Pasta, the new branch is a sister restaurant to the cozy cross-town spot of the same name. Westville East opened once before in 2004, at the site of the current Curly's Lunch on 14th Street, but folded after a short stint in the space. Daily sides featuring market specials like roasted beets with walnuts, grilled asparagus with parmesan, and roasted cauliflower, are perfect compliment to comforting favorites like beer battered fish n' chips, lemon roasted chicken, and grilled salmon. Westville East is scheduled to open in February.

The forthcoming Westville East will be located at 173 Avenue A (at 11th Street).
