In March, we learned that not only was long-standing Mazzone restaurant Aperitivo Bistro closing, but a new restaurant was already in the works. Just a few short months later, we know when Grano is opening!
Grano, owned by Danny Petrosino, chef-owner of Osteria Danny in Saratoga and Armondo Cioccke, chef-owner of Armondo’s Villa Tuscan Grill in Rotterdam, has been quite the buzz of Downtown Schenectady since the announcement a few months ago.
Grano, which means wheat in Italian, announced on their social media page that they will be officially open for business this Friday. They describe their menu on their website as: “An urban oasis where local, fresh, and simple are the mantra, grano let’s you sip a great glass of wine and enjoy the robust taste of farm-to-table Italian cuisine, including daily fresh made pastas, in a casual, warm atmosphere looking out onto New York’s Electric City.”
Reservations currently being accepted, take a look at the menu for yourself.
