Erica's Italian Table on Track to Open in Former Sierra's Space in Sudbury
The owners of a now-closed Mexican restaurant that had its share of financial troubles are getting ready to open a new dining spot within the space--though it won't happen until they pay off some bills.
The Sudbury Town Crier is reporting that Sam and Erica Cannarozzi are hoping to open Erica's Italian Table in the former Sierra's space on North Road once they pay taxes owed, which were listed at approximately $50,000 as of last month when a meeting was held concerning the renewal of its license. The Sudbury board of selectmen said at the time that they would not renew the license until the taxes were paid, and while they are not paid back yet, Sam Cannarozzi says that they will be before Erica's opens and believes that the restaurant could be up and running in about four to six weeks.
Sierra's went through a troubled stretch during its final years in business, temporarily closing in April of 2013, then reopening before closing once again in August of 2014, two months after we reported that it was going through financial difficulties and asked the town for more time to pay off its debt. The first mention of Erica's opening in the Sierra's space came about in December of 2014, but the board of selectmen said it would not be able to open until the debts for Sierra's were paid off.
Once Erica's Italian Table does open, it will offer pasta and seafood dishes as well as pizza, with a dining room and a bar being set up within the space.
The address for the upcoming Erica's is 470 North Road, Sudbury, MA, 01776.
