Sorella Reopens Saturday; Unrelated, Inspections System Decried

Two weeks of post-holiday renovations are nearly complete at Sorella, and chef Emma Hearst’s cozy Allen Street restaurant will reopen Saturday night.

Manager Brittany Hoed assured us in an email yesterday that the temporary closure that began Jan. 2 was for a kitchen floor upfit, and unrelated to a Dec. 6 inspection in which the restaurant drew 47 violation points — by far its highest score on record in the restaurant’s three years in business.
