Quinci Emporium is back.

Well, almost that is. The ever-popular Short North spot for food and cooking classes–which was ranked the 11th best Italian restaurant in the United States by Fodor’s Travel–will officially reopen on June 2.

Quinci Emporium is located at 11 Buttles Ave.

The eatery has been closed since the beginning of February for a planned relocation. It was formerly located at  688 N. North High St., only several blocks from its current location.

According to owner Deborah Quinci, who also holds regular cooking classes at Quinci Emporium, the relocation happened in part to find a more comfortable and intimate spot for her classes.

“It has been a long few months of construction , but the results are spectacular. Quinci is ready to open. Our shelves are being stocked with wines, pastas, sauces, and an array of other fine foods,” a statement posted to Quinci Emporium’s social media accounts reads. “My new kitchen will be the center of lively cooking.”

The eatery hasn’t announced when it plans to relaunch its cooking classes, but noted a schedule will be posted soon.
