A veteran local chef is ready to bounce back into the local restaurant scene, creating a yet- to-be-revealed new concept in Henderson.
Named after the man himself, Chef Piero Broglia will take over 2,215-square-feet at the Parkridge Center retail strip on Horizon Ridge Parkway, a short distance from Arroyo Grande Boulevard.
The restaurant hasn’t announced a possible menu, debut date, or opening hours, but paperwork for the project dates back to December and an application for a beer, wine, and spirits license was recently been submitted.
An Italian dining specialist, Broglia is well known locally as the former operator of Pasta Mia, the original name inspiration for Piero’s, and the owner behind the menu at Cafe Chloe in Spring Valley. Sold last year and transformed into D‘Agostino’s Trattoria, the restaurant still serves a tribute collection of the chef’s Cafe Chloe dishes.
Broglia also launched a fast-casual sandwich concept Great American Food in 2015, with big dreams of turning it into a nationwide franchise. The southwest location closed a year later and became the new home of Vegeway.
