Veteran chefs Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s new restaurant and bar, Faccia Brutta and Bar Pallino, are all set to open at 278 Newbury St. on May 24.  “We are taking reservations for May 24, so we better be ready,” Bissonnette told Boston.com. “We’re just throwing caution to the wind,” he joked a week before the opening. “No, seriously, we’re ready.”

Faccia Brutta’s menu is inspired by Italian coastal regions, but Oringer and Bissonette put their own spin on recipes and look to local purveyors and ingredients. The opening menu will be light and fresh with a crudo section that includes langoustine with apple and pickled rhubarb, which is inspired by “time spent in Venice,” said Bissonnette, and a black bass crudo inspired by “a raw fish dish eaten in Sicily.”
