Wow! Jay Villani sure nows how to throw a Party! Several hundred friends and loyal Local 188 customers showed up for the opening of his new Old Port venture "Sonny's".
Ralph and Cathi Barton, from Roxbury, CT. have been coming to Portland and going to Local 188 for the last eight years and decided they just couldn't miss this opportunity.
Food from the new menu was free and flowed out of the kitchen starting from the five o'clock start. There was a waiting line for a table and the cash bar was surrounded all evening. The ribs were sweet and perfectly done, my wife said the steak was the best she's had since we were in Buenos Aires this spring. Everything I tasted was delicious.
They'll be open for dinner & taking reservations saturday and open for lunch on monday.
