Fresh off celebrating its 10-year anniversary on Main Street (congrats!), La Masseria, 223 Main St., is featuring a three-course “Main Street Lunch” menu daily (except Mondays, when they are closed), from noon to 3 p.m. For $22, patrons will be able to choose from three appetizers, six entrees and three desserts.

There will be a familiar name manning the pizza oven at 5641 Post Road, home of the former Cobblestone’s Wood-Fired Pizza: Victor Vargas, former right-hand man to John Illiano, of Frank & John’s Pizza. Illiano sold the business to Lucy Chacon, who has carried on the F&J legacy. Vargas moved on and now he will be the chef of the new Victor’s Pizza. Look for the restaurant to open later this fall.

Everyone was disappointed when Feast Sandwich Co. closed its doors. According to town officials, the space at 427 Main Street may have a new tenant soon. Stay tuned.
