Maria Hines has announced an opening date for her new Southern Italian restaurant, Agrodolce: December 21, the same day the Mayans predicted the world would end. If the world doesn't implode, Agrodolce, housed in the former 35th St. Bistro space, will be open for dinner only, with lunch, weekend brunch and nightly happy hour to follow in the coming months.

The menu will focus largely on handmade pasta. Other inspirations from Hines' recent travels to Sicily include housemade burrata, arancini, bucatini, lamb meatballs and housemade limoncello sorbetto.

Tilth executive chef Jason Brzozowy will take on executive chef duties at Agrodolce as well.

The Hines camp says Agrodolce will embrace the "end of the world as we know it" date by hiring R.E.M. to perform their hit song. Not really. Instead, Hines will offer a special end of the world pre-fix menu and party that may or may not involve melancholy 80s music.
