One of the first stories ever on MoreThanTheCurve.com was the closing of Viggiano’s during the summer of 2009. The family-style Italian BYOB, owned by Mark Viaggiano, was open for 11 years on East 1st Avenue in Conshohocken. It has been rumored for some time, but today we received confirmation that Viggiano’s will be reopening in Conshy.
The new Viggiano’s will be returning to its original space on East 1st Avenue, which is currently occupied by Spampinato’s. When Viggiano’s closed it was quickly replaced by Spampinato’s, which was owned by next door neighbor Spamps.
Spampinato’s is to close on Monday, March 4th. Marcie Spampinato sent MoreThanTheCurve.com an email stating that anyone with a Spampinato’s gift card or Groupon, can use it this weekend at Spampinato’s, or it will be honored at Spamps after Spampinato’s closes. Spamps will remain a steak, seafood and sushi bar and restaurant with a private party room.
We have not yet had the opportunity to speak with Mark Viggiano, but once we do we will have another story with his plans for the return and the targeted opening date.
