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.
