Southern comfort food is coming to the Town of Madison.
In late February, Miranda Durrer-Davis bought Bonanno’s Restaurant from Tony Bonanno and planned to keep the Main Street eatery exactly as it had been for the two years Bonanno owned it. However, on March 1, Durrer-Davis’ first day of ownership, she said Bonnano decided to step away. The experienced chef and restauranteur then decided to go a different route with the business. The next day, she made the decision to close the restaurant for a few weeks.
“I put the sign up after we closed and planned to re-open on March 22,” she said. “Once I started cleaning and organizing, I realized that it would be a little longer. We ended up painting and putting down new hardwood flooring.”
As well as a new look, the restaurant will have a new name and new menu. Miranda’s will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week and will focus on Southern home cooked meals. Entrees range from $3.99-$24.99. All meals are available for carryout.
Durrer-Davis is looking forward to opening. The Spotsylvania resident, who is originally from western Orange County and has an MBA in accounting, had been looking for a business opportunity in this area and is looking forward to being a part of the Madison community.
“I want to make a living and make this be a great place to eat,” said Durrer-Davis. “I’m planning to serve comfort food but will also have sandwiches and salads. Our motto is southern hospitality with a smile. Right now, we’re doing all the last preparations for opening on the 5th.”
The official opening is scheduled for April 5 at 4:30 p.m. Durrer-Davis plans to be open seven days a week and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
