Milwaukee restaurateur John Vassallo – aka "Johnny V" – will co-open Pomodoro Pizzeria and Pub at 717 N. Planktinton Ave. in the former Mo’s Cocina space.

Vassallo, along with his brother Jamie Vassallo, plans to open the new venture in August or September of 2015. The bar and restaurant will focus on Wisconsin products, including pizzas made from locally-sourced cheese and 18 or more Wisconsin beers on tap.

Vassallo is the owner of Mo's Irish Pub as well as other eateries with the "Mo" name. This will be Vassallo's eighth restaurant.

"Looking forward to working on this with my brother, Jamie. He’s going to do an amazing job," says Vassallo, just one day after National Sibling Day.
