End of an era at a few local eateries
Some local eateries are saying good-bye this week, either to their business or to a component of it. Neighborhood favorite Ronnie's Ribs will soon be switching owners: Longtime chef and operator Veronica "Ronnie" Carter says that she's looking for someone to buy out the equipment and continue running the restaurant as it is now. Never fear, however; the doors to the restaurant will remain open until the business is sold. And fans of the "Swine Market" at Marcello's Wine Warehouse have to bid farewell to their rich Reubens and mouthwatering muffulettas, as the liquor store ran into issues with permits related to food service, which would have required additional construction on site in order for Marcello's pressed sandwiches and other lunch goodies to be served. The Warehouse will continue to sell alcohol. Fans of Italian fare and imported wines can still find plenty of both at owner Gene Todaro's full-service restaurant, Enoteca Marcello's, next door. And Brunet's Cajun Restaurant, a longtime Flannery Road seafood spot, is set to close Saturday. For more food news, check out 225 Dine here.
