Gigi & Mario, a 90-seat spot in City Place helmed by Palombino, whose Motorino pizzerias in Williamsburg, the Upper West Side and the East Village, were also lauded by Time Out New York as having "Best Artisan Pie" and New York Magazine for being the "Best New Pizza Joints," is scheduled to open Oct. 10. He also owns Motorino outposts in Hong Kong, Dubai and Malaysia.
