Hoping to open in early to mid-February, Simmer Down will serve homemade comfort food. Chef Chris Marino has been cooking for many years in restaurants, country clubs, senior homes, caterers and even owned his own pizza shop and not only is he expert with favorites like meatloaf, pot roast and chicken-fried steak, he still has a love of Italian food so there will be Italian-American favorites as well.
“We will be cooking from scratch every day and we will serve breakfast all day as well. We are already getting requests from friends and neighbors about what they would like to see on our menu and I hope to get a lot of feedback prior to opening so we can really give people what they want.”
Marino also cooked for a while at BB’s and Andice General Store and is thrilled that the site was available for his new venture. Wife Terry says “He is excited about a new challenge and being able to pull together all of his cooking experiences into one great restaurant. It’s a lifelong dream and we hope the success of his pizza shop will translate here to Georgetown.”
Simmer Down will be a family restaurant and the menu include beer and wine and they will finalize the menu this month to let everyone know which favorites will be served.
