Posted at 1:07 PM, Jun 11, 2020

Chef James Trees has announced a new dual-pronged restaurant project in collaboration with LEV Group Executive Chef Bruce Kalman.

The new restaurant named Scuola Vecchia (“Old School”) will reliven a space at 420 South Rampart Blvd. in Tivoli Village.

Scuola Vecchia will bring to Tivoli a menu by Chefs Trees and Kalman blending regional Italian cooking and American Italian classics.

Dishes such as Chicken Parmigiana, Braciole and Trofia Genovese will be featured, alongside rotisserie meats, all made with the best local, fresh and housemade ingredients available. A carefully curated wine list and fuss-free old school cocktails will also be offered, with a focus on the inviting bar and patio areas.

Meanwhile Ada’s, previously serving creative Italian, will evolve into a more casual wine bar, serving great wine discoveries by the glass and bottle, with tapas and small plates in a comfortable social environment. Wine and food will also be available to takeaway for picnics or enjoyment at home. James Trees will remain Chef/Partner of the space.

Scuola Vecchia is set to open this Fall.
