I haven't posted in a while so I don't know if anyone posted about this. This restaurant on 130 South in Yardville, formerly Giovi's, has a big for sale sign on it. I have to say, I am not surprised whatsoever, thought it would tank sooner than it did. I'm not a cheap person, but their prices were outrageous for this area! Every time I drove by there, (almost every day), there were hardly any cars in the parking lot.
Let's hope whatever goes there next is a lot better.
I agree with you completely. I went there several months after it opened. The food was good but not good enough to justify the insane prices. Looking around, I realized I was paying through the nose for atmosphere. I'm willing to do that at Rat's, because it IS lovely there, but not at this place. It's a great location with all the development going on in the area. I would love to see a non-chain pancake house or something like that open up there. Just please, no more Italian restaurants - we're riddled with them in Hamilton. Even though it's my favorite kind of cuisine, I could really use some more variety.
This place was a bit ver the top, and you could tell they spent a ton of money renovating it. The inside was nice, and the sushi was good, but I didn't seem them lasting. Fear not though, new sushi is coming a few blocks away in the new shopping center being built. I think it is going to be called Fusion II, and is the same owners as Kenji's Fusion Asian Bistro on Route 33 in Hamilton. -mJ
