Vesuvio open in new locale

Posted By on Fri, Aug 9, 2013 at 3:46 PM


The Italian bistro Vesuvio that was once located off the lobby of the Governor's Suites on Merrill Drive is now open at new digs at 1315 Breckenridge Drive, formerly the home of El Chico Mexican Restaurant. The new space seats 100-plus and has a large bar; the menu, which has received acclaim from folks around town, is the same: seafood, poultry, steak, veal served in traditional Italian fashion.

The restaurant, owned by Bill Criswell, is open every day from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. A baby grand piano should be arriving in a couple of weeks for live music, host John Dicus said. He said the restaurant has been "very busy," so folks are finding it in its new location fine.
