Get your tastebuds ready because Chef Anthony Bucco, is opening a new contemporary Italian restaurant in Ridgewood: Felina. We loved his cooking at  Restaurant Latour and his new space will be in the beautiful, old bank building that formerly housed Fish on Ridgewood Avenue.

Bucco left Restaurant Latour to become a partial owner of a restaurant. He’s partnering with restaurateur Frank and Jeanne Cretella of Landmark Hospitality. In the past, Bucco has received the New York Times’ highest rating; has earned AAA’s Four Diamond Award, and received 4 stars from The Star-Ledger.  Latour remains one of NJ Monthly’s Top 25 Best Restaurants and one of Wine Enthusiast’s America’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants.

Bucco told, “I’m not looking to create a destination place but a restaurant with a comfortable environment where the menu is market-driven and people can come in a few times a week…and a nice bar.”

Felina’s, 54 E. Ridgewood Ave., Ridgewood.
