It looks like Donnie Wahlberg isn’t the only New Kid On The Block with an interest in the restaurant world.
Jordan Knight is one of the investors for a new Italian restaurant opening in East Milton Square in early January, Knight announced on Twitter Tuesday.
I'm excited and honored to join a great group of investors in the town of Milton's newest attraction!! NOVARA!! https://t.co/4SW93MYixh— Jordan Knight (@jordanknight) December 22, 2015
Novara will open at the site of the old Milton Cinema—or more recently Java Joe’s—at 556 Adams St., according to The Patriot Ledger.
The 5,500-square-foot restaurant will be run by the same team behind the popular Milton restaurant Abby Park. Abby Park’s executive chef, Tony DeRienzo, created the menu for the restaurant with northern italian eats like pizza, homemade gnocchi, and Nonna’s spaghetti and meatballs, according to the Ledger.
It seems that Knight is pretty excited for the menu, as he’s been trying to get the chef on the road with him during NKOTB’s next tour.
I'm still trying to convince the chef to cater our next tour haha! He may be busy though...— Jordan Knight (@jordanknight) December 22, 2015
