As of this Friday, you will have a new dining option in downtown Schenectady.

The old Apertivo location is getting ready for a new restaurant this week! According to a CBS 6 report, Grano is set to open near Proctor's Theatre this Friday. The Grano website describes the new restaurant as "...the most exciting and authentic Italian fare this side of the motherland" and "An urban oasis where local, fresh, and simple are the mantra."

Taking at look at Grano's menu, the offerings look super tasty. From great small plates to some tasty looking pastas and entrees, Grano just may be your next dinner destination before our next Secret Star Acoustic Jam! You can also get a good look at some of Grano's dishes on their Instagram.
