News Bite: Changes coming to FS Food Group

Over the next several months, restaurateur Frank Scibelli's FS Food Group is planning some big changes.

The group recently sold Cantina 1511 to a South Africa-based company (although they remain partners), and is focusing its efforts on its remaining restaurants.

Here's the scoop:

  • Midwood Smokehouse will get a major expansion. The renovation will essentially double the size of the restaurant, including adding a larger dining area, a bigger kitchen, and a large, wraparound bar, plus access to the rooftop deck. (Side note: its neighbor, Slate Interiors, isn't going away–it will simply shift into the long-empty space next door.)
  • Bad Daddy's Burger Bar is expanding to Raleigh, with two new locations in the works, and plans for further expansion through new locations, jointly-owned locations, and franchises.
  • Mama Ricotta's will get a new look in September (post-DNC). The restaurant will close for five days while it's under construction, including new decor and new furniture—lots of wood, brick, and leather accents.
