OFFSHOOT COMING: Deli work began today.
Since the news is light on the holiday, let me throw in another scrap of restaurant business news.
It's a little later than hoped, but construction began today on Bruno's Deli,
the lunch takeout place to be opened next door to Bruno's Little Italy
at 310 Main Street.
The construction schedule is 60 days. Owners hope to beat it.
Plans were announced last summer for the storefront deli at 308 Main in the former Dundee's menswear space. Co-owner Gio Bruno said at the time that he'd offer Italian sandwiches, with a some limited stool seating for eat-in and a takeout window. He plans to stock meat, cheese, pasta, sauces, olives and other items.
