Olio to manage new eatery at former home of Mollie’s

Last month readers Primetime and Cris told me that Mollie’s at 1218 State Street has closed permanently. The eatery became nationally famous in the early 2000’s after a fan named Oprah fell in love with their meatballs. The restaurant had moved from its longtime home on Coast Village Road to State Street in June 2018. They are not officially announcing it just yet, and don’t have a firm opening date, but Elaine Andersen Morello, owner of Olio e Limon Ristorante and other local gems, tells me that they were hired us to operate a new restaurant at the now former Mollie’s location.  Morello tells me they she will still own and operate the Olio restaurants as usual and are not the owners of the new eatery, only employee operators.  The unnamed new business owner is not affiliated with Mollie’s.
