The Grist Mill, formerly The Reading Room, one of the most picturesque dining spots in the state, is serving its last meal tonight. The Grist Mill is moving to Avon and the toney Miss Porter’s School is purchasing the property.
A 1950- something alum of the nearby exclusive girl’s school has donated the estimated$1.2 million needed to purchase the property from the Zaco family that owns the building, according to a school source. Several hundreds of thousands of dollars need to be secured to rehab and renovate the historic riverside place that also contains The Millrace Bookstore.
Anthony Giraulo, who owns the restaurant , said his new location in space formerly occupied by Carmen Anthony’s, which also closes today, will open in the next two weeks.
And those ducks that lived by the river and were incubated and raised by the Giraulo family? The Giraulos have a call out to several farms with ponds to make sure their ‘pets’ have an easy transition.
