Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar to Close for Renovations June 30
Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar will be completing renovations to its dining room and lounge June 30 – July 5 and will be closed while work is under way.
These renovations will include new flooring throughout the restaurant as well as a complete remodel of the lounge with new liquor displays, bar top, tables and chairs. The effect will be much lighter, brighter and more contemporary. Phase one of Ferraro’s renovations was completed last fall with the introduction of new contemporary décor, featuring clean lines and soft cream walls with dark wood finishes, replacing its previous Old-World-inspired scheme that utilized elements such as overstuffed upholstery and heavy draperies in gold, orange and burgundy.
“In order to stay relevant in the restaurant business, we must be willing to update not only our menu, but also our ambience,” says Gino Ferraro, owner, Ferraro’s. “We’re excited to offer a fresh new atmosphere for our guests to enjoy along with their favorite Ferraro’s dishes.”
Among the special featured dishes guests will be able to try this summer amidst the new enhancements will be those featured in the Summer Regional Menu Series. Every two weeks, award-winning Chef Francesco DiCaudo will prepare a new, four-course menu comprising dishes from a different Italian epicurean hotspot. All menus are priced at $49 per person and select bottles of wine, chosen by Ferraro’s sommelier to complement the featured menu, will be offered at special values as well. As a result of the closure for remodeling, the next menu, spotlighting Trentino, will be offered July 6 – 11.
