Shiso Kitchen Opens; Billy Costa & Jenny Johnson Return

SOMERVILLE — Shiso Kitchen, a space for cooking classes and other food-related events, quietly opened up in late January next to a laundromat by that little corner in Somerville that's home to Dali, The Wine & Cheese Cask, and most recently, The Kirkland Tap & Trotter. It's run by Jessica Roy, "former Le Cordon Bleu Chef Instructor, Left-Handed-American-Female Sushi Chef, Food Columnist, Personal Chef, and all around adventurer." [Official Site]

NORTH END — A restaurant called Donato & Gianni appears to be taking over the space of the recently shuttered Davide, which had appeared on Kitchen Nightmares. Donato Frattarolli of Lucia Ristorante is listed as the manager of the new restaurant on a licensing hearing agenda. [BRT]

ON TELEVISION — Shortly after NECN removed the long-running TV Diner from its line-up, it was reported that its hosts, Billy Costa and Jenny Johnson, would land at NESN. Indeed they have, and their new show, Dining Playbook with Billy & Jenny, premieres on Saturday, February 8th, at 11:30am. [Zagat]
