Volta, the contemporary French restaurant moving into the former ‘Wichcraft space in Westfield Centre, is one step closer to opening. Umberto Gibin and chef Staffan Terje (Perbacco, Barbacco) are gearing up for a late November debut, and here's a sneak peek at the shiny new rendering of the facade — with the official logo — to prove it. The guys are also officially on the hunt for a restaurant manager and wine director to run the space, which will veer away from the Italian cuisine they’re known for. Instead, Terje is going contemporary French, with some Scandinavian influences. He just got back from a trip to Sweden, where he was "presumably getting culinary inspiration" for the menu.
They've nailed down the opening to the "week after Thanksgiving," and Cass Calder Smith Architecture is moving right along with the design, as you can see above. Stay tuned for more details as the opening approaches.
