More change is coming for the Hillsboro Village neighborhood, as restaurant Savarino’s Cucina and its upstairs bar Amari will close their doors after service on April 29.
According to the Nashville Scene, the news was broken by local food writer Jim Myers on his Facebook page, just a day after he, along with a number of his colleagues across the state, was laid off from his post as food and drink columnist at The Tennessean.
The following note was also posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page earlier today by owner Corrado Savarino:
The 11-year-old Italian restaurant, best known for its selection of sandwiches named after some of its lively regulars, has been a fixture since 2006, but Corrado’s son Carmelo Savarino tells the Scene that Corrado and his wife Maria “wanna semi-retire, they want to relax[.]”
But Carmelo also offers hope for the restaurant’s regulars, saying that he intends to open his own restaurant in the future, with those locally famous sandwiches in tow.
