Stuzzi Restaurant (aka Bar Stuzzichini at 928 Broadway) in the Flatiron has permanently closed and in its place is a popup sister restaurant of Brooklyn Buschenschank of Carroll Gardens. Buschenschank serves up Northern Italian food similar to the the taverns in the Alto Adige, which regionally is heavily influenced by traditional German and Austrian food. It will be open at least through October and the Octoberfest season but a MadParkNews source tells us that it may become a permanent restaurant in that space if things go well through October.
From what we have been told, the menu is the same as the Brooklyn restaurant and can be found at http://www.brooklynbuschenschank.com/Dinner-Menu.html but it seems they are also serving the Octoberfest menu. As you would expect, they have a nice selection of German beers.
We have not been there yet but more info to come as we get it.
