I heard a rumor this summer (that I forgot to check on) that Panezanellie's had closed.
I just found the following two notes on Facebook, thanks to Travel Salem.
I've pasted the most recent at the top:
"We will be opening again tomorrow, new owners but same staff! The hours will be wed-thurs 11-8, fri-sat 11-9 and sunday 12-7. Thank you!"
"To Our Dear Friends,
I'm sorry if you've come by for a breadstick or a cup and have been dissapointed because we are closed. The thing is, Panezanellie Breadstick Shoppe is now a memory-one of the best of our whole life! I hope if will be a great one for you too!
We opened knowing we would be only short term. We hoped we were more than just a good restaurant, rather a cozy inspirational clean place where you could feel Gods presence and feel comfortable, as well as get great goodies.
We wanted to serve the town where we have made our home for thirty years, and honor my wonderful Grandma Nellie and her exceptional ways in the kitchen. When i lost my mother recently, i knew it was time. She always said, "Your heart has to be in the kitchen, cooking is love." So isn't it really a good thing that we will be able to keep Panezanellie a great memory and close when things were going so well. Thank you so much for being so supportive through all the experimenting with recipes, the equipment failures, and the cancer.
They say, the end of one things, is always the beginning of something new-so lets look forward to the next fresh idea that this place will become- a new dream for someone else! i look forward to when my wonderful girls open a place in the future, because i know they will some day. I've been blessed with cooking talents and fantastic smiles. I hope you have enjoyed them too!"
Thank you and love to all,
Jon, Moira, and Kristen
