Morcilla is back.

The popular Lawrenceville eatery will reopen April 4, after flooding forced its temporary closure.

The restaurant , owned by chef Justin Severino, made the announcement on its website and Facebook page.

The second floor above the restaurant flooded in early January, which severely damaged Morcilla's dining room.

In an interview with Pittsburgh Magazine , Severino said the opening will bring changes to the Spanish-style restaurant.

“We tried to take this closure as an opportunity to let us explore how things can evolve and grow and what we'd like it to be for us,” Severino told Pittsburgh Magazine.

The changes include sound-proofing improvements as well as new menu items such as dry-aged steaks and chicken paella, the magazine reported.

The restaurant will be open Wednesday through Sunday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
