We drove up yesterday ostensibly to shop at some kitchen supply stores but the real reason was to go to Paesano's. About halfway up we decided to call them to make sure they were open (even though we've been on Sundays before) and no one answered. A very hard to understand message made it sound like they might be closed either for renovation or vacation. A little more in-the-car research taught us that:
1) They were closed at the beginning of the year for about 10 days for vacation
2) They are now closed while they move to a new location in the Italian Market area
3) The 9th and Christian lovation is going to be a Sicilian restaurant owned by the same folks.
We cruised by just to see if it was true, and it was. Be entertained going up to Girard for their other location but part of our plan was to walk around and it would have put us too far afield (so we went to DiNic's instead, finally.)
Anyway, I'm posting this because I haven't seen this info on CH and every time someone from out of town asks for recs people send them there. I even sent another person there this same weekend. The website has no info and the message is really hard to make out. I have yet to see a timetable for the reopening and the opening of the Sicilian place but that sounds like a reason to plan a return visit right there!
