Fettuccini fans, rejoice. Missy Robbins, the woman behind the beloved Williamsburg eatery Lilia, is opening a new restaurant at the Domino Sugar Refinery this weekend: Misi.

The new restaurant follows Robbins’ recent coronation as the James Beard Foundation’s Best New York City Chef. Misi (which takes its name from the Italianized version of Robbins’ own first name) will follow in Lilia’s Italian-inspired tradition, but this time with a pasta-centric menu. According to Grubstreet, Misi will focus on the parts of the Lilia menu Robbins is most proud of: the pasta and the veggies.

Robbins, who New York Magazine once called “one of the city’s foremost pasta goddesses,” envisions the new restaurant eventually becoming an all-day operation, as opposed to Lilia, which currently serves only a limited pastry and panini menu until 4 p.m., at which point the more extensive dinner menu becomes available. The two restaurants will be within walking distance of each other.

Diners can expect fresh dishes like tortellini with greens and mascarpone, corzetti with marinated cherry tomatoes and bigoli with pork sugo, with the pasta shaped, cut and stuffed on site. Gelato and an Italian-inspired drink menu will also be available.
