When Palomino closed last month in Gateway Center, many readers called and e-mailed their concerns that a new restaurant would not replace it...
The new operator, David Greenberg, has grand plans for his new restaurant, Elements.
Mr. Greenberg has owned and operated restaurants in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for 20 years. But the tourist destination has been hard hit by the recession and fears over the swine flu, so he's been looking elsewhere to open a new restaurant.
He heard about the space in Four Gateway Center from a friend at Hertz Investment Group, which owns Gateway Center. When he came to Pittsburgh to check it out, he expected to turn it down.
Now, just a few months later, he is moving to Pittsburgh with his wife and two young sons on July 1.
"I've really been pleasantly surprised by everything in Pittsburgh," Mr. Greenberg said.
After conducting an extensive search, he has teamed up with Justin Severino, currently at Eleven Contemporary Kitchen in the Strip District...

"The kitchen there is awesome. When [Palomino] put it in, they did not mess around," he said. "There's a huge rotisserie you could put a whole pig on, a pretty big brick pizza oven, a large smoker; it's really geared toward the kind of food I like to cook."
Both men agree that a dedication to local ingredients and products will inspire the food at Elements...They hope the restaurant will open in late summer.

We were also discussing this in another thread--it sounds great. I also happened to be reading earlier that Gateway has been put up for sale (not out of necessity, but because of repeated statements of interest, and the current owners want to sell Gateway for a profit and move on to other Pittsburgh development projects). So this can't hurt their marketing of the complex.
