Jay and Susie Weinstein: Celebrating a new Dillon eatery

Jay and Susie Weinstein

Just an extraordinary story about a leap of faith by a local family in Summit County. The Otto-Borgo Family, well known for their ownership of a wonderful northern Italian style restaurant – Ristorante Al Lago in Dillon – are back at it in a very gutsy venture. Ivano the patriarch of the family was the chef for two decades at Lago, left the food industry for 10 years, doing renovations and restorations in Summit and Eagle counties, has decided with his wife, Gina, their daughter Chantelle and two sons Adriano and Denilo, to reopen the ristorante with a new name and a new flavor – Adriano’s Bistro.

What is interesting about this story is the family is taking a big risk in this tourist community and questionable economy to open a very fun and delicious bistro, creating several new jobs in Summit County and Dillon and a new tax base for the Town of Dillon.

The Otto-Borgos have created something very special in their northern Italian menu: homemade soups, cheeses, desserts, pestos, yogurt, fresh hot bread, not to mention the special appetizers, Italian deli items, special entrees, excellent Colorado wines and incredible service at a very low to fair bill of fare. Ivano should be congratulated for providing our community with a wonderful venue, taking a big business risk, creating new jobs, and providing our tourists and local community with something very special. In the tradition of the Italian culture one has to say Bravo, y complementi.
