Galileo May Reopen In Butterfield 9 Space

Another juicy bit from the Other People's News file: Tom Sietsema reports that chef Roberto Donna, at left, hopes to take over the former Butterfield 9 space at 600 14th St. NW to bring back his once celebrated Italian restaurant Galileo.

And though you never know until the contracts are signed, this would obviously mean that chef Morou Ouattara of Farrah Olivia didn't get the space. The City Paper's Tim Carman first reported on Ouattara's hopes to acquire the space back in September.

Well, I'd bet that Roberto would be happy to be back in DC.

I hope he opens soon. I received a gift certificate as a gift. Then they 'renovated' Galileo. I have been unable to use the certificate and receive no reply. I keep getting told that when galileo reopens the certificate will be good, it has been years.
