Allegria Ristorante

A new restaurant, Allegria Ristorante, just opened this week on Harrison Street in downtown Hollywood.

Following a “soft opening” Tuesday night for a private party, the restaurant opened on Thursday, said Hollywood attorney Gerald E. Cowen, who represents Allegria Ristorante LLC, the company behind the new restaurant.

Cowen said his client assumed a lease for a space at 2009 Harrison Street with about 4,100 rentable square feet. He declined to disclose the remaining term on the lease or the lease payments to the landlord, Marbella Harrison Investments LLC.

Other restaurants had previously occupied the space, including Sushi Blues, which featured live entertainment.

Allegria’s chef previously ran the kitchen at Casa D’Angelo Ristorante in Fort Lauderdale.

The eastern end of Harrison Street is a retail corridor one block south of Hollywood Boulevard in the downtown area. The street is also set to see another new business, tenant, a shared-office development near Allegria. Miami-based shared office space company Büro last year made a deal to buy a city-owned building at 2031 Harrison Street from the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency for $1.15 million. Following extensive renovation, Büro’s Hollywood location will have about 15,000 square feet of space.
