After a year and a half at 2528 Castle Hayne Road, Oscar Berrios is moving his Italian restaurant, Broadway, to Lumina Commons.
Berrios bought Spicoli, a pizza business, from owners Jason Davis and Josh Novicki. The Spicoli owners announced their closure via Facebook on April 26. Meanwhile, Berrios said he had been looking for a space that would bring him closer to many of his customers and increase Broadway’s visibility.
“Wrightsboro is a difficult location,” Berrios said. “The only complaint I ever got was about our location.”
The change in location will also bring about a shift toward dinner service. While Broadway will still be open for lunch, Berrios said he anticipates scaling down the lunch menu and increasing the number of dinner options.
The atmosphere will be casual and family-friendly, with a full bar and a mix of booths and tables. Berrios said he will be bringing some of the décor from his Wrightsboro location and making some minor adjustments to the space, but no major renovations are required.
Berrios is still refining the menu, but after a recent trip home to New York City, where he cooked with some of his former colleagues, he is excited to try out some new dishes.
Customers can expect stuffed chicken breasts and pork chops, lamb chops and marinated skirt steak as well as pastas and traditional Italian dishes like chicken marsala.
Broadway is expected to open in early June at 1978 Eastwood Road in Lumina Commons.
