Michael Pure, who owns The Margarita Inn, tells food blogger Steve Dolinsky he’s taking over the shuttered Va Pensiero restaurant on the ground level of the hotel at 1566 Oak Ave. in downtown Evanston.

Pure says he plans to shorten the restaurant’s name to “Va P” and turn it into a “more accessible, less stuffy” incarnation of its former self.

No date yet for the planned reopening.
