PIATTI: END OF DAYS




And then the lights dimmed.

Goodnight, Piatti.

Sweet Dreams to all.




PIATTI: END OF DAYS





PIATTI END OF DAYS: SARAH & CHRIS



After the shift, a breather

17 years


Piatti will close, and reopen November 1st as Montecito Wine Bistro.

Piatti Corporate's fixation on the bottom dollar ensured that almost no money was ever spent renovating the bar and restaurant out of the 1960s.

And now they've sold their staff, including some who worked 17 years, down the proverbial river.

Corporate loyalty is almost always a one-way street.
