Today's ride on the Capital Region(+) Foodie-Go-Round
Grazie is scheduled to open at 4 p.m. this Friday at 26 Marshall Street in North Adams, MA. It's a venture from business partners David Moresi and Matt Tatro. Moresi is the man who just finished restoring his grandfather's old tavern, The Mohawk, several months ago. They had planned to open Grazie late last year, but other projects by Moresi's construction company delayed that plan. Grazie's appearance is on the old-fashioned side, with white tablecloths, vintage menus, and Italian scenes purchased on eBay mixed with contemporary scenes of old Italy on loan from the artist and photographer Kelly Lee. It also has a deep-counter bar to encourage eating there, and the lounge has a curved banquette and deep red wallpaper that are a backdrop to vintage photos of Moresi's ancestors. Reservations only for the first two weeks of operation. Phone: 413-664-0044.
