About two months ago, Venice's quaint yellow cottage, Ado, experienced a back-of-the-house electrical fire (city electrical wires started the fire, fell down during a rain storm and the surge caused a fire in the back of the restaurant) forcing the Italian Main Street staple to immediately shutter. Co-owner Paolo Cesaro announced via the restaurant's voicemail that "we closed temporarily right now for a month, month and a half...I miss all of you." Meanwhile, back on cyberturf, Ado's website posted a June 7 update sharing news that the restaurant would reopen in "about five weeks." Not so much. Due to necessary interior and exterior fire repairs, the health department needs to revisit and sign off on the restaurant, so as it stands now Paolo foresees a potential August 11 reopening.
