Landini Brothers is expanding into the former Silver Parrot jewelry shop on King Street

Landini Brothers (115 King Street) plans on converting a neighboring property at 113 King Street into an exclusive three-story members-only area by the end of spring/beginning of summer, the restaurant’s owner tells ALXnow.

Noe Landini says that the final permit approvals with the City are pending but to expect an 18-week construction schedule. The property at 113 King Street is the former longtime home of The Silver Parrot jewelry shop, which closed in 2021, and the America! shop.

“For the members-only club and Landini’s, we will now be able to do 100% private events,” Landini told ALXnow. “That, for us, is going to be a game-changer. I’m very excited about the plan: the space. I’m anxious to get it going.”

The expansion means that Landini Brothers will have to go through thick walls that are more than 200 years old.

“We are going to break through the foundation wall between Landini’s and the old Silver Parrot space,” Landini said. “We’re going to break through that four-foot-thick stone wall to connect the Landini dining room to the new space.”

The Italian restaurant has increased its footprint numerous times since opening on the first floor of 115 King Street in 1979. In 1983, the city approved a special use permit (SUP) request for the restaurant to operate on the second floor of 115 King Street, and it expanded to the first floor of 117 King Street in 1999, and then to the second floor of 117 King Street in 2002. In 2009, the restaurant opened up the third floor of 115 King Street — as well as the second and third floors of 113 King Street for the first iteration of the members-only club, which now boasts more than 350 members.

Landini recently signed a 40-year lease on the new 2,267-square-foot space, and that it will have a mahogany bar, custom-made leather “Sinatra” booths, a record player with a record library and antiques from around the world.

“We have a lot of very cool museum-quality exhibits and artifacts that I want to remain kind of a secret just to create a little curiosity,” Landini said. “I have some pieces from Mexico, from Italy, and also some Americana exhibit pieces that I’ve been collecting for this purpose.”
