MOONS TO TAKE 8-WEEK BREAK

Lisa and Mike Kelly shared with us that after their New Year’s Eve dinner service they are closing their famed restaurant somewhere in Quincy for eight weeks. The restaurant’s last supper of the year on Dec. 31 will surely delight even the most discriminating palates with a specials entrees featuring roasted lamb, prime rib and lemon scallops and shrimp Bucatini accompanied by a complimentary glass of champagne and dessert. Of course, you can also order off their regular menu if you choose.

Now, back to the decision to close for eight weeks, which, if you know the Kelly’s and their love for Quincy and their patrons, this had to be a difficult decision for them to make. The two said they have some family obligations to attend to along with some projects they’ve had planned for upgrading the restaurant that they’ve owned and operated for eight years. They will also use this opportunity to revisit menu selections. They apologize for the inconvenience to their customers and look forward to seeing all of you this spring when they reopen March 1.
