Primavista expects a lift from the new City Lights development. The Italian fine-dining favorite, located in the Queen's Tower apartments-turned-condos, is at the top of Price Hill and in the center of the recently announced Incline District development that will include offices and retail space.
CityBeat: What's the last great meal you ate, and where did you eat it?
Chris Prince: Jean-Robert at Pigall's. It seems like I had rabbit and the service was wonderful, but I'm really embarrassed to admit that it's been almost a year ago. We used to like to go to fine dining restaurants, but now we have a daughter. She's 3.
CB: Primavista does wonderful Italian food, but I wonder: Does it ever feel limiting to you to be locked into one country's cuisine?
CP: Sure, I mean, we can't suddenly do Pan-Asian cuisine. But Italian is a pretty broad subject. Mediterranean -- you've got so many different ingredients and ways to combine them, so many styles. People will say to me, "Hey, that's not Italian," like when I do seafood. But Italy's got water on three sides, so -- you can always do seafood.
