Paesano’s Plays Italian Market Musical Chairs


The new BYO from Modo Mio’s Peter McAndrews, Monsu, took over Paesano’s 1257-square-foot location at 901 Christian Street (leased from Midwood Management) for about, according to Zillow, $1900 monthly. Cash-only Paesano’s will still be in full force right down the block at its new digs, the 1400-square-foot retail space at 1017 S. Ninth Street that was last listed for $1200. With Sunday-favorite Sabrina’s across the street, it was no wonder Butcher’s Café couldn’t survive. We hope that a restaurant like Monsu, one that is offering something different to Bella Vista, will succeed just as James has.
