Figlio replacement will be Il Gatto

After much speculation from community members and hint dropping from Parasole Restaurant Holdings, the restaurant that will soon take Figlio’s place in Calhoun Square has a name: Il Gatto.

It means "the cat" in Italian and Parasole CEO Phil Roberts has been tweeting feline clues about the name since July.

Roberts said the remodeled restaurant at Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street, which was home to Figlio from 1984 until just a few days ago, will feature mostly Italian food. More details to come next week, he said.
