District 611 in Riverton Will Open...

The new restaurant from Stephen Starr alums announced an opening date sooner than you might have thought.

 

District 611, a new restaurant from former Stephen Starr restaurant employees, is slated to open in Riverton Saturday.

According to the restaurant's Facebook page, its cuisine is contemporary New American (locally sourced ingredients, unexpectedly delicious mash-ups) fused with Neapolitan-style pizza.

District 611 is owned by Starr alumni Brian Baglin and Catherine Piotrowski and headed by executive chef David Perini (also a Starr alum).

The restaurant held a friends and family night this week but will officially open to the public for lunch and dinner this weekend.

District 611 is located at 710 Broad Street in Riverton.

Roger just curious but why should they make an exception for you? Their hours of operation are what they are. You couldn't wait 5 minutes?

@Sarah, I side with Roger. The number one rule of business is to create good will. You do not want to turn away business. You only have one opportunity to earn the dollar bill that is waving at you. Turn it down and someone else will earn that dollar bill as it happened in this case. I am sure Starr will be disappointed to learn his staff turned away an opportunity to make money over a few minutes. The restaurant is new which means they have to work out their kinks. I hope Roger would try them again. Roget might want to phone in his order. I am a regular at Zio Tuscany since I first read about them in Patch last year. Their food has always been great. Their service is great now but it took them a while to work it out.

It was there Grand Opening yesterday, its rediculous to think they should have made an exception for someone coming in early. My wife and I walked in around 6:00 without a reservation and were seated right away, it got real busy soon after we arrived. The place is very nice, service was good, nice menu and we had a very good meal at a reasonable price (Loved the brussel sprouts). I for one am very happy a restaurant of this caliber has opened close to home. And its a BYOB which I prefer.
