Wicker Wire: We reported a short time ago that Azzurra Chicago closed up shop New Years Eve at 1467 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park. Shortly thereafter the lease and business were snatched up by a new restaurateur, Dean Casagrande, with visions of meatballs; according to a report published today by DNAInfo.

Mondo Meatball, as it will be called, will feature all different types of meatballs originating from countries world wide. Casagrande is envisioning a "meatballs of the world" menu with options including everything from a Korean pork meatball to Swedish meatballs in gravy. The meatballs can be served with salads or in sandwiches. Pasta dishes will also be available.  

As far as the drinks go, craft beer, cocktails and an Italian aperitif -  Cinzano - will be available. No details have been provided as to the timing for the opening of the new eatery. We will keep you posted.
