|Selvaggio says it might be time to sell|
It appears that the charming 67-year-old owner Piero Selvaggio is ready for a new challenge, but he is really selling the hot Westside real estate more than the entire restaurant. "The property and the land is being put for sale and I may sell the whole package contingent upon this deal," he told us.
Rather than redo the eatery one more time, Selvaggio would rather update with the times to a smaller and simpler concept - be it on that piece of land or another one nearby. "I don't need a 200 seat restaurant with 10,000 square feet anymore, we do a lot of private events but I want a smaller place where my eyes are everywhere," says Selvaggio. Sorry potential buyers, the staggering 100,000 bottle wine cellar is not for sale. "That is our asset, it will go w us wherever we go. 40 years is a record in this town and we are still going strong." We wish him the best with the sale and look forward to the next chapter.
