Dishing it: More tasty morsels are surfacing about Riondo’s Ristorante, which is scheduled to open in mid-June in the space formerly occupied by Luigi’s Ristorante Italiano, 2328 Strand in the island’s downtown.

Edgardo “Rico” Caminos and Don McClaugherty are behind Riondo’s, which will serve Northern Italian dishes. And this is notable: James Cole, former executive chef of the highly regarded Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Houston’s River Oaks is part of team Riondo’s. Caminos, McClaugherty and Cole plan to create an atmosphere where people want to relax and linger, McClaugherty said.
