In a location that has gotten the better of several previous tenants (Barbie’s Bistro was there from June 2008- May 2010, followed shortly by Millie’ Philly Cheesesteaks) Kent Kumbroch feels confident that Amicis Place will be successful. “We’ve put together a fun place, done significant upgrades and have a menu that is right for the location. We want people to eat local and eat fresh,” shared Kumbroch. He stressed that just about everything that can be made in house is and he sources many of his ingredients locally.
Your chance to check it out begins on Thurs, June 23rd, when the restaurant opens for breakfast at 7am. Morning meals will run $6-8. Lunches, which will feature sandwiches on bread from Belmont Bakery, run about $6.50 and salads for about $8. Chef Josie describes the menu as casually elegant. Brick oven pizza’s will play a big part on the menu and run $7 -$13 for classics, while specialty pies, with your choice of traditional white or multigrain crusts will be in the $9-$18range.
The restaurant has a liquor license and the house specialty is a homemade Limoncello, which can be served frozen or on the rocks. Sounds like the perfect patio drink, and since the patio is about 1/2 the seating at this quaint place, let’s hope for some good weather for their opening weekend. And in what sounds kind of weird, the restaurant will not be serving beer or wine, since their liquor license doesn’t include them, at this time.
Kent mentioned that he’s been working since mid-April remodeling the building and feels like he’s created “a nice relaxed place to hang out.” Once he gets things running smoothly, he has future plans to host a weekend farmers market in the parking lot.
We wish him luck and we’ll check it out soon. If you go, let us know by commenting on the bottom of this post!
