Farmington’s Murphy and Scarletti’s To Close?

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , Date:

Murphy and Scarletti’s, the famed Farmington restaurant that served up as much late night fun and dancing delight as it did pasta, is apparently closing in January.

Facebook and Twitter postings began last week about the anticipated closure. Staff referred calls to the manager, explaining the restaurant was not taking bookings beyond the beginning of the year because it could be closing. Owners, however, declined to discuss the reports until after the holiday season.

“There is no comment right now,”  said co-owner Bill McDougall, who, with Bryan Moffett, owns the popular pasta grill and bar located in the Farmington Exchange across from UConn Medical Center.

Known best for its wide range of live music from blues to rock, an always lively Happy Hour, and its reputation as the place to go on Friday and Saturday nights, the restaurant also serves up a noteworthy  menu that included its pizzas,” build-your-own- burgers and pasta dishes for those who came to dine.

    Dec. 29th (Sat) was the last night for this great, neighborhood establishment. Thanks to Bill and Bryan and all of the staff for so many wonderful memories and good times! Best to all!
