Ciro's, a new Italian-themed eatery at 307 Smith Street that took over the space once occupied by the Fall Café, was getting ready for its grand opening yesterday afternoon as I walked by. Red and white checkered tablecloths adorned the tables, the windows had been decorated with assorted Italian staples like yard of roasted peppers, provolones and salamis. Workers were busily giving the place a last polish.
According to my friend M., Ciro's, which was conceived by Jim Mamary, Smith Street pioneer restaurateur, was asking people off the street into the restaurant to sample free food last night. See an example above. According to M. "it's Italian all the way"
Was anyone there last night? How was it?
