Moretti’s Ristorante officially moves into Rosemont this Friday and begins its re-haul of Rosemont Plaza on Higgins Road into Moretti’s Rosemont Plaza.
The well known local Italian-American restaurant chain managed by A La Carte Entertainment will take over a storefront on the west side of the shopping center.
“I grew up in the area and we couldn’t be more excited to be bringing Moretti’s to Rosemont,” said Mark Hoffmann, the new location’s owner.
In about two months, A La Carte’s newest venture, Buddy’s Italian Beef, will open its first location in one of the eight additional storefronts on the mall’s east side.
Buddy’s was still under construction as of Tuesday, according to Jeff Newing of A La Carte.
Moretti’s new 10,000 sq. ft. location will offer a similar menu to its seven other locations in the Chicago suburbs, with some individual flair.
“We always try to improve our menu,” said Newing.
It will also include an indoor bar, private dining area and outdoor garden with a canopied bar. According to A La Carte, the Rosemont location plans to feature live DJ sets several nights a week and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
For the soft opening through Sept. 15, Moretti’s will open at 3 p.m. After, the restaurant will open at 11 a.m. daily.
Moretti’s Ristorante Rosemont will be located at 9519 Higgins Rd., west of River Road.
