Announced at the last Village Board meeting is the impending opening of a number of new businesses on Franklin Avenue this fall. They include "Rose Randolph Cookie Shop", "Leaf & Bean" and "Love Feast" (whom we know from Millerton and Amenia Farmers' Markets) who is opening a Vegan restaurant in town. Millbrook Nails has now moved to Franklin Avenue from its former location on Front Street. Owner Kevin Tran and his wife offer manicures, pedicures, waxing and massages. Chef/owner Joe Comizio of Franklin Avenue's new restaurant, Trattoria San Giorgio is looking for experienced staff. Qualified parties should send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I spoke with chef/owner Joe Comizio of the much anticipated new restaurant, Trattoria San Giorgio, on the corner of Franklin and Church Streets. He expects to open in a few short weeks The trattoria will be a full service Italian restaurant specializing in brick oven Neopolitan Pizza (12 inch individual portions) that will be served in the dining room or available for pick up.
The Orvis Game Fair will be held September 21st and 22nd. Country sport enthusiasts (shooting, hunting, fly -fishing, wing shooting, falconry, dog training, etc.) should plan on two full days at the fair. Demonstrations, seminars and fun activities for the kids are all on the program. Over 70 vendors of fine sporting goods and services will be present to display their wares. The event usually brings about 3000 participants to Millbrook, many of whom also make their way into the village.
