Bella Notte at u. S. A. Club a ‘restaurant on the brink’

The eating place at the Brattleboro Country Club is being leased with the aid of the family that runs Terrazza Restaurant at the Country Club of Greenfield, Massachusetts. Bella Notte opened on April 20, giving northern Italian cuisine with pub fare. “When the brand new [golf] pro came to the Brattleboro Country Club, I bet he referred to to the proprietors that he may also understand a few those who would be terrific for the place,” stated Abaz Cecunjanin, proprietor of Terrazza and assistant to the proprietor of Bella Notte, his brother Erdin Cecunjanin. “So he gave me a call. I got up and noticed the eating place with my brother, and we decided to take it.”

Abaz said Erdin was the chef at Bella Notte in Bernardston, Massachusetts, and moved again to Connecticut but decided to “rejoin the forces of the family and open any other restaurant.” An assertion that Bella Notte in Bernardston could near changed into made returned in December 2012. In addition to the Italian food the family’s restaurants are acknowledged for, Bella Notte will have a gaggle of sandwiches, wraps, and salads and a list of cocktail specials switched out each week.

“So I name it a restaurant on the brink among nice dining and pub food,” Abaz stated. “We’re doing an extraordinary task down in Greenfield managing both simultaneously.” Members and guests “are glad, and we are satisfied,” he stated. “So far here, the reaction has been brilliant, and we look ahead” to the future. Abaz said he had been giggling over the previous few days as he thought about the brand-new area.

“Nice Italian food in a New England domestic — it surely fits fantastic,” he said. “It makes me feel like I’m at home inside and having dinner, mainly while you serve gourmet meals as we do. People are without a doubt satisfied.” Abaz stated that the eating place is getting “many calls” to e-book weddings and other events. “During the season, it is always an awesome idea to test and ensure we’ve got openings for dinner because we may have a wedding taking place, where we should close the ability,” he stated.

The first wedding ceremony of the season is scheduled for June 1. Abaz said he enjoys the scenery and has noticed how many Brattleboro region citizens have visited the Greenfield restaurant. He informed his brother they could compete over clients. Abaz and Erdin are from the small US of Montenegro, the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Abaz moved to the US in 1998, and Erdin got here in 1986.

Lunch hours at the Brattleboro eating place is 11 a.m. To a few:30 p.M. Seven days a week. Dinner is from four to 9:30 p.m. Except for Sundays, the restaurant closes at 8:30 p.m. “In a few months, we’re going to start with everyday lunch and evening specials,” Abaz said. “I realize that Brattleboro has loads to provide and that we will try to be part of that,” Abaz stated. He does not play golf because he does not have the time, counting 45 days of working in a row at the interview.

“It’s loopy,” he stated. In March, Brattleboro Country Club owner Melanie Boese instructed the Select Board she turned into “actively looking” for a lessee for the restaurant. She said it had been hard to market the restaurant as a year-round established order, which is no longer as lucrative as she had hoped.

“I feel like I am a steward for something. This has been a vital part of this community for a lot longer than I have and optimistically might be right here for a lot longer than me,” she instructed the board. So surely our consciousness is to build that business and make it healthy so it’ll be around when I retire.”
