Two former fans, Scott Diaz and Andrew Simontacchi, purchased the grill in the Montecito Center from former owner Jeff Gonsalves with plans to reopen the restaurant mid-February, 2012. They’ve taken the last few months to rehab the 30-year-old space — in need of a new drainage line — with new flooring, furniture, a power cleaning and a other updates. But the vibe, said Diaz, and the name will remain.
“The place is going to look good. We’re keeping the tradition and the menu, but adding a few new specialties.”
Gonsalves, the second owner of the restaurant, closed it in Nov. 2011.
