New Kid Jordan Knight invests in new Milton restaurant

The Boston Globe/Globe Freelance

It turns out Donnie Wahlberg isn't the only New Kid on the Block moonlighting as a restaurateur. While Wahlberg is busy with his burger chain Wahlburgers — and the A&E reality show it spawned — Jordan Knight is one of the backers of Novara, a new restaurant in Milton. We know because Knight (inset) tweeted about it this week: "I'm excited and honored to join a great group of investors in the town of Milton's newest attraction!! NOVARA!!" The northern Italian restaurant is opening soon in the space formerly occupied by Milton Cinema. Knight's partners are the gang behind Abby Park, namely chef Tony DeRienzo, Vance Welch, and Ajay Sadhwani.
