Biz construction update

Scott and Monique Bartosh, owners of Miner Moe’s Pizza on Freeman Lane, have begun demolition on the interior of a new building that will house their restaurant.

Their new location will be at 231 Colfax Highway.

Scott Bartosh said construction began Jan. 15, and he expects the work to take up to eight months. They must still await approval of their final plans from the city of Grass Valley, he said.

Also, while the core idea of the restaurant will remain the same, some changes are expected.

“We are hoping that it would be a little more of a mainstream restaurant, more of a sports bar,” Scott Bartosh said. “We are adding some more pastas and chicken and steak dinners, prime rib. We are flirting with the idea right now of being open breakfast, lunch and dinner.”

They are also thinking of being open 24 hours, he said.

Residents who opt not to dine in will be able to bring a pot to the back door in the afternoons and get it filled with ravioli and ravioli with steak.

The move was prompted “because we are tired of paying the exorbitantly high rents at that shopping center,” Scott Bartosh said. The couple has been looking to move since 1998. When they learned the property on Colfax Highway was up for sale, he said they were first on the list to buy.
