2nd location of German/Italian eatery now ‘Open’

Washington County area diners and users of the restaurant review site “Yelp” will have something new to yelp about. The Open German/Italian Restaurant will open an additional location in Peters Township.

One of the owners of the restaurant, Salvatore Plescia, said that this location will offer a full size bar, with seating for that between 35-40 people.

This location will be different because it will have seating for a max of 115 people, much larger than their original location in Venetia, Pa.

Both restaurants’ gravies and sauces will be homemade at the new location, and will be shipped to the original location at 101 Sugar Run Rd. Venetia, underneath the Venetia Post Office.

While the base menu will be the same, some differences in the additional location will be the development of a garden to grow the fresh greens for their menu items. New dishes will include a few new salads, pasta dishes, German specialty items, and new desserts.

Both restaurants also now offer outdoor seating, though patrons will have to wait for warmer weather to try the new outdoor spaces.

The idea for the one location for sauces is so that “the taste is consistent,”said Plescia.

Representatives of the Township are excited for the new restaurant opening.

“We are very excited for the arrival of the second location of the Open Restaurant here in Peters Township,” said Brian Schill, the director of the Peters Township Chamber of Commerce. “Good things (food) comes to those who wait.”
