The cat is out of the bag and I probably couldn't have kept it a secret any longer anyways. The Holiday Inn has retained the Chef and Owner of Isabella's Restaurant, Drew Nicastro to run their food operation for the time being.
Rumor has it that the corporate masters of Holiday Inn had given the local operation a very firm deadline to get the restaurant back up and running or the franchise would be in jeopardy. That would have been a very very bad thing. Look for the doors to open before the New Year.
Drew will do a nice job. I'll be curious to see what he does with the dinner menu.
