There's a lot of rumors going around about the shuttered Frizzante space at FDB/8th Avenue and 117th Street but we just got some reliable information that a new restaurant will be arriving in about a month's time. The new Italian eatery will be called Lido and will have a completely different interior, staff and menu than its predecessor. This location is pretty central to all the new condos which have seen an influx of buyers this past year so if these guys get the quality and service right, they should succeed nicely. The storefront itself is one of the nicest new ones on the block so it's really what the new proprietors do with the rest of it that will make or break the new business.
