As far as I know there is nothing going on at the Holy Grail. However, there are new enthusiastic owners of Hector's across the street that are already planning improvements to the restaurant and to be much more active in the community. I had lunch there a few weeks ago and it was good and Anthony the owner was extremely nice and accommodating.

Default Faro Express - estimated opening date: Nov 2

I called Faro Italian Grille the other day, and asked them if they had determined an opening date for Faro Express, in the old Pizza Hut building. The person on the phone told me they were currently estimating a "launch date" of November 2nd (a Friday).

It is supposed to be more of a casual, take out pizza and other italian staple dinners.

Faro Express will not have a full bar either, simply Beer & Wine.

I have also been told (by Management) that Faro's will close for the first 2 weeks of November and the staff will assist during the "soft launch".

Unhappy Faro Express opening delayed.

Had dinner at Faro Italian Grill the other night, and our waitperson said the hoped-for opening date for Faro Express (of Nov 2nd) has been pushed back, due to unforeseen circumstances. Dinner (Chicken Marsala and Pollo Abruzzese [Ziti w/chicken & broccoli in creamy white wine sauce]) at the Grille was great though!

This is a tough time to open a restaurant in this area.

It may be better to wait until spring.

I agree. Why pay labor and other costs in the off season. If you want to hire employees and work out the kinks April would provide enough time before Memorial Day.

How was the Masala Sauce?

We have been think of trying the Veal Masala. One other reason is the Menu notes they are MADALIONS of VEAL. The last time I saw it listed this way was at Karen and Barry's in Meredith.

Can't tell you how much we miss Karen and Barry's!

I am getting tired of VEAL SLABS and Franco American BROWN GRAVY!

Nolan's has a good Veal Masala.
