New Restaurant To Open at Former TraVino

New Restaurant To Open at Former TraVino

By Luke Haase

John McGee and Glen Harrington are headed east.

The duo, owners of Harrington’s By The Bay in Greilickville and Sorellina in downtown Traverse City, will open soon a restaurant at the former TraVino Wine & Grille in Acme. TraVino, owned by Schelde Enterprises, closed in February 2013 after Howard Schelde decided to retire.

Along with a group of local investors, McGee and Harrington purchased the TraVino building and property and will now begin renovations, including a revamping of the interior, new flooring, and an all-new roof.  more
