Blue Bell - Domenico's out... new resto opening 10/1 in old Blue Horse Inn space

and of course I completely forgot the name as soon as the sign was out of sight! I did get the impression that it's going to be another Italian themed restaurant... Carlo's Something? sheesh. now i'm going to have to drive by again tonight! ;)

      1. Thanks for posting. Hopefully this one will last longer than the predecessors in that space. There does seem to be a glut of Italian restaurants in the area right now.

          There does seem to be a glut!

          We drove by last evening and I noticed that now the sign just says October instead of October 1. I tried googling, but didn't find a site yet.

        2. I noticed last night as I drove by they are making progress in their transformation... and there's a website posted on the sign...
          it doesn't mention anything about the restaurant, just advertises the chef's tv program. bummer - I was hoping they'd have restaurant info posted - I suppose it's too early to hope for a menu. ;)

          1. Have heard that Chef Salvatore has a distinguished resume. We do know that he likes pink and seeing his name in quite large script above the front doors. A glut of Italian restaurants in the area is quite right indeed. By my initial count there are 10 within 10 minutes. Perhaps the chef's bravado can overcome both the glut and the curse on this location.

              Sign today says they'll be open Thursday for lunch and dinner.

                  Same for the bakery in North Wales (can't find the OP) . . . well? Open\Not open? Good\Bad?

                  I know we need a bakery; do we really need another Italian restaurant?

                    A woman I know from work knows someone who went there and said it was good and affordable. that's all i've heard. nothing specific.
                    very few reviews yet when I google the name.
