As well-known Carmen Anthony’s prepares to close its Avon location, and the Grist Mill in Farmington prepares to move to that space, both places will be serving their last dinners in those respective locations on Saturday night.
The Grist Mill, a longtime restaurant on the Farmington River, will close following dinner Saturday night. Owners Anthony and Kristine Giraulo will relocate to the Avon location with a planned opening as soon as possible.
No word on whether the ducks and geese that provided the outdoor entertainment at the restaurant are going too!
Carmen Vacalebre, who owns Carmen Anthony’s said the Avon location will serve its last dinner on Saturday night as well.
His other locations in Waterbury, Wethersfield, New Haven and Woodbury will continue to operate and will honor any gift cards from the Avon restaurant, he noted.
Vacalebre is also offering diners who visit the Avon site on Saturday one last parting gift, a $25 gift card (with restrictions) that can be used at his other locations.
“This was not an easy decision. I have been challenged in this location for the past couple of years due to the prolonged economic recession and the severe weather last year,” he said about his decision to close the Avon restaurant. “This recession has affected us, as it has every other business and unfortunately, in this down economy, this location just couldn’t keep pace with our other locations.”
“I want to thank our loyal Avon guests and friends personally for their patronage,” he continued. I look forward to seeing you all in my other restaurants.”
