In just over four years, Bret Adams managed to assemble a five-restaurant (and counting) empire since opening his first Burntwood Tavern in Chagrin Falls. With additional locations in Rocky River, Solon, Brecksville and Cuyahoga Falls, the fast-growing concept clearly has legs. Before the end of the year, Adams will open a brand new concept, again using Chagrin Falls as the starting point.
M Italian, “an upscale-casual Italian eatery,” will open on W. Orange Street, in the heart of the village, before the end of the year. Named after his wife, the restaurant will feature simple Italian dishes with contemporary twists. Diners can look forward to salads, pastas and wood-fired pizzas — all made from scratch in house.
