Exclusive first peek: Gozo will open on South Broadway...soon

Back in June, when I first reported that chef-restaurateur Dylan Moore was closing Deluxe and Juanita's, the two adjoining spaces he owned on South Broadway, I also revealed that both restaurants had been snatched up by Frank Jolley, a longtime restaurateur and nightclub owner who had most recently spent the last few years in Napa Valley. When I interviewed Jolley in early June, his hope was that he'd open Gozo, the restaurant that now occupies both of Moore's former spaces, by August of last year, but permitting issues and inspections significantly slowed down his progress. But finally, after months of impatience, Gozo, named for the idyllic island in the Mediterranean Sea, is nearing completion, and once Jolley gets the city to sign off on his liquor license -- he's hoping that'll happen within the next week -- Gozo will be the newest eatery to join South Broadway's restaurant row.
