We’re officially open!

Hey, guys! We did it!

It’s been a very hectic last few days getting permits, prepping food, washing everything, getting art on the walls, electricity running to all the right places, and staff ready to serve. I’m sure most of you have had the chance by now to stop by and have a peek through the iron gate. Now those gates are wide open and I couldn’t be more happy to welcome you officially to Orofino.

As you might expect, we’re still finding things to fix (like getting the newest information on this website, for example)! You’ll see an updated menu here online very soon as well as a few other things we’ll be offering at the restaurant like special events, language lessons, and cooking classes.

I only have a little time to write—I need to get back at it again in the dining room and make sure everyone is having a good time—but I at least wanted to leave a note here to thank everyone who’s helped my and my wife and family finally see a dream come true here in downtown Fredericksburg. Thank you for signing up for the newsletter! The newsletter is the best place to stay on top of any special offers so stay tuned!

I owe a big thank you to the community here in Fredericksburg for all your interest and attention while we were getting all the many pieces of a restaurant together. I’ve met so many like-minded business owners along our modest streets who are passionate about serving people well and taking care of each other. I’m honored to have such great neighbors!

Thank you also to everyone who helped out in even the smallest way in getting everything set up! You are all too many to name but from the bottom of my very full heart I thank you for your support and care and for sharing this journey with me.

Con tanto amore, grazie mille!
