Ozzie’s Coming Back to Life?

Rincon Valley burger spot will reopen.

Ozzie’s Grill in Rincon Valley may soon come back to life.

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.
