Matt Baugartner posted today the plan for the Miss Albany Diner building -- an Italian restaurant called Sciortino's:
Sciortino's is going to be a casual, Italian restaurant featuring some of my grandparent's recipes, and other delicious stuff like meatballs, pizza and pitchers of beer (!!!).
That's the sign for the new restaurant on the right.
The place is named after his grandparents. Sadly, his grandfather passed away Sunday:
I'm gonna miss him very much. He was the best grandfather I ever could have wished for. I'm happy that his last name will live on in a restaurant that I hope he would have been proud of.
Matt and business partners Jimmy and Demetra Vann bought the Miss Albany building -- but not the name or recipes -- in February. As you well know, the group also owns Wolff's, which is just next door.
