An Italian Steakhouse May Open in Former Victor's Italian Cuisine Space in Saugus

It looks like a new restaurant may be opening in Saugus where an Italian dining spot had been, and it will apparently have at least a loose ownership connection to a legendary restaurant nearby.

According to an article from the Saugus Advertiser, an as-of-yet unnamed Italian steakhouse is being planned for the former Victor's Italian Cuisine space on Route 1, with the list of partners including Stanley Wong, who is one of the owners of Kowloon, along with John Carlino, Joseph Bono, and Robert Wong, the last one whom may be one of the owners of Kowloon as well. (The family behind Kowloon includes Robert Wong, and the article does say that "the Wong family" is involved.) If all goes as planned, the new restaurant could be opening in the spring of 2020.

Victor's Italian Cuisine shut down this spring after being in business in this location for a couple of years; it had previously been in another space a short distance away on Route 1.

The address for the upcoming Italian steakhouse in Saugus is 1639 Broadway (Route 1), Saugus, MA, 01906.

[January 15, 2021 update: A new article from the Saugus Advertiser indicates that plans for an Italian steakhouse are still in the works for the former Victor's space, with a subdivision being proposed for the site that would include the restaurant (and possibly a rooftop bar) in one lot while it isn't yet known what would be in a second lot.]
