  • The Market Pub House, slated to open in May
Restaurateur John Racanelli has announced that his property at 6655 Delmar Boulevard will reopen as the Market Pub House. According to his press release, the new venture will feature casual appetizers and entrées -- spring rolls, burgers, housemade pastrami -- in the $5-$7 range. According to the sign outside the space, the Market Pub House is slated for a May opening.

The space was previously Racanelli's Cucina, a sit-down restaurant serving a more upscale style of pizza than local chain Racanelli's New York Pizzeria. Racanelli's Cucina, which also sold Racanelli's regular pizza from a separate area on one side of the restaurant, opened in November of 2008 and closed in February of this year. For Delmar Loop denizens jonesing for their by-the-slice fix, Racanelli does plan to open a separate spot serving his New York-style pie.
