Georgetown, CT - mini-update

So for the handful of us who frequent the Georgetown district....

Moving south on Route 7 from Route 102:

Tusk & Cup has opened in the space formerly occupied part of the year by H&R Block. Owned by members of the Ancona family (who own the building - which was the original Ancona's Market building), this new addition to the neighborhood has various types of coffee, teas, etc., pastries, sandwiches, et al. Looks cute from the outside but, since I'm completely addicted to Starbuck's Chai, I haven't been in there yet. As soon as the kids go back to school, I'll stop in for a snack and see what it's like. Anyone try it yet?

One block south, the restaurant that was Amici's, then something else (Mexican?), etc. is under renovation...again. A sign went up a few weeks ago annoucing "La Piazza" - something about a Wine Bar and clearly Italian. They just put a "greenhouse" type of window opening at the front. I guess hoping some people want a view of the traffic on Route 7 and the mechanic across the street as accompaniment to their meals, lol. No other news. Anyone else know when it's scheduled to open or whose behind it?

And moving to the intersection of Route 107 - Caraluzzis put up signs announcing that the space formerly used by Yankee Doodle now undergoing renovation will be use to support an expanded produce and deli section, as well as a "cafe."

Personally, I'm still holding out hope for a good ethnic restaurant in that shopping center....but I guess beggars can't be choosers. (We've been schlepping to Hunan Cafe in Wilton for take-out and, while it's definitely the best option around, it's really a little too far for true convenience.)
