Well, now people can see what the future restaurant might look like. The project comes before the Town's Design Review Board on July 19th. The below pictures are from the DRB application required for the changes to the building.
aShortChronicle heard from Michael Orlando on the preliminary plans for the project. Orlando says Mandolino's Artisan Pizza is targeting Sept. 15, 2017 for opening as a farm to fork artisan pizza restaurant occupying the ground floor of building (206 S. Main Street) formerly occupied by Millstone. Hand-made ingredients, locally sourced, will be brought to you by the owners of Flatiron Kitchen across the street in Davidson.
Asked about plans for the upstairs space, Orlando said "we will also occupy the second floor space formerly Upper Crust but have not decided on a final concept yet, though we expect to offer a bourbon bar, live music and event space."
High end pizza, good spirits, and live music all in one spot. That's something every college town needs, and now it looks like Davidson will finally be getting that right on Main Street.
