Allora, the new upscale Italian restaurant at the Pearl, has set a March 2 opening date.

The latest project to emerge from the rattle and hum of restaurant construction at the Pearl, Allora will open exclusively with dinner service to begin with. Lunch and brunch hours will begin soon after.

The dinner menu from chef Robbie Nowlin encompasses antipasti and salad dishes, sashimi-grade seafood crudi options, handmade pastas and entrees including scampi, mussels, grilled swordfish, rabbit, quail and steak.

The project from restaurateur Peter Selig (Maverick Texas Brasserie, Ácenar, Biga on the Banks) also includes a full cocktail bar and a Europe-centric wine list.

Allora’s debut will come just two weeks after its more casual sister concept Arrosta opened Monday just a block away at the Oxbow Building on Broadway. It is serving a casual breakfast and lunch menu of baked goods, roasted meats, quiches, salads, wine, beer and more.

Allora, 403 Pearl Parkway at the Credit Human Building at the Pearl, Hours: 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. | Twitter: @fedmanwalking | Instagram: @fedmanwalking
