Recently, the City awarded the lowest and best bid to Ferrell Paving in the amount of $1,393,727.42 to begin construction on this long-awaited and long-planned project. This project will add sidewalks on both sides of Main Street extending from Highway 51 to Northwest Drive, then carrying southward along Northwest Drive to City Hall and Saucier Park. It will also add new mast arm traffic signals with pedestrian crossing options at the intersection of Whitworth/Main. The City received federal co-op money administered through MDOT in the amount of $991,341 allowing the City to fund this project completely with just $487,386.42 of City funds. Projects like this get delayed from time to time due to property right-of-way and utility obstacles. Projected completion of this project is in September, ‘21 and will be well worth the wait as it will help us with our goals of the revitalization of our original business district and the improvement of pedestrian options in our city. If you haven’t been to Saucier Park behind City Hall, you are missing a beautiful park. Connecting this park to this new pedestrian path will add an excellent new amenity for our citizens.
It’ll take a big sign for Alex Grisanti to let folks they’ve arrived at his new restaurant. On Friday, Elfo Pizzeria in Southaven opens, part of Elfo Grisanti Northern Italian Cuisine. He’s pretty sure people will call it Elfo’s. Grisanti worked for years along alongside his father and brother Judd at Ronnie Grisanti’s and later opened Elfo, the restaurant he owned with his wife Kim, first in Chickasaw Oaks Village and later in Germantown. (Judd Grisanti owns Ronnie Grisanti’s in Regalia.) Alex Grisanti also owns 9 Dough 1 pizza food truck. In this week’s Sound Bites, we talk about the new restaurant, which has evolved over the past few months that Grisanti has held the lease. He’ll open with pizza, salads, sandwiches and take and bake items in the pizzeria on Nov. 13 and hopes to have the full-service restaurant open around Dec. 1.
We are excited to be welcoming the first Grisanti restaurant in Mississippi! Alex Grisanti will be opening Elfo Grisanti’s in Southaven in early September. This new family-owned restaurant was named after Alex Grisanti’s grandfather and son. It will be located on Getwell Road near the new Silo Square. The restaurant will include a main dining area as a pizzeria, along with a few private rooms for fine dining. For the time being, they will serve takeout and hold off on their dining room due to COVID. The menu will include the Grisanti classics, such as toasted ravioli, Elfo’s Special, Manicotti, and Miss Mary’s Salad. The classic Italian restaurant will be cozy, simple, and charming. Southaven is delighted to be having such a wonderful addition to the city!
