Reader Primetime fired the first shot by texting me that Trattoria Mollie in Montecito is looking to open a location on State Street. Reader Peter added more detail: “I noticed that the space occupied by Trattoria Mollie has come up for lease in our local Multiple Listing Service. The space, 1250 Coast Village Road, Suites E and F is described as 2,950 square feet and is said to be currently occupied by a restaurant. The asking rent is $6.50 per square foot. While I suppose she could still extend her lease, the listing suggests that Mollie may no longer exist in the near future.” Reader Meg offers yet more detail: “Rumor has it that Mollie’s son, from Trattoria Mollie on Coast Village Road, is opening a restaurant at the former Tupelo Junction Cafe location, 1218 State Street next to the Granada Theater.” Lastly reader Bruce sent me of a confirmation photo of an ABC application at 1218 State Street that says that the next tenant will be named Mollie’s, brought to you by Trattoria Mollie, Inc.
