Jason Dady's Tre Trattoria Downtown replaces Restaurant Insignia 

The restaurant space in the Fairmount Hotel is cursed. No eatery stays for very long. Maybe it’s the location, the distance from the River Walk’s tourists, the restaurants themselves, who knows? Sage, Luca, and Polo’s all folded in this location. Now
Jason Dady’s Restaurant Insignia is the latest victim.

But as soon as it died, a new restaurant sprung up in its place — a second edition of Tre Trattoria, Dady’s popular Tuscan restaurant on Broadway. Basically, Dady is changing the fare from new American to Tuscan Italian, which is more palatable to tourists and conference-goers. Dady closed Restaurant Insignia last week and scrambled to change it into Tre Trattoria Downtown by Saturday. The new website is already updated with a new menu and hours.

Tre Trattoria Downtown’s menu is almost the same as the flagship location’s, but features a weekend brunch. If you were a fan of Insignia’s brunch, you’ll be glad to know it’s similar, but with more Italian flavor. The mimosas are still on the brunch menu, and yes, the first two are still $1. That’s why you go to brunch, right?

Let’s all hope Tre Trattoria Downtown succeeds. Otherwise, we might just have to put that space out of its misery.
