Prime 93 to be Bricco

Excerpt taken from Akron Beach Journal »

Bricco owner David Glenny said Prime 93’s last day will be July 29.

The New Franklin place will shut down for a few days for a “quick remodel” and the hope is that Bricco Prime will open within the next week.

Whew! Ambitious.

But Glenny has a lot of experience; he now has four Briccos, including the mothership in downtown Akron that opened in 2003.

Sometime this year, Jim and Julie Pulk, owners of Prime 93 at 4315 Manchester Road, plan to open their new winery called Prime Vine across Manchester Road, and Bricco will oversee its food service.

The winery property boasts a century home and carriage house that are being renovated for the tasting room and special events.

Pulk said the wines will be dubbed Vine 93, and will be produced and bottled in California.

Grapes have been planted on the property for some wines, but it will be awhile before the vineyard is established.

You can see the vines between the trees as you drive south on Manchester.

Bricco will retain the Prime 93 staff and increase employment, since it is adding lunch and Sunday service.

All Prime 93 banquet reservations and gift cards will be honored.

“This was part of the appeal,” Glenny said.

“Not only do I have a turnkey restaurant, I’ve got a turnkey staff” of about 20 to 25 people.

The menu will be a mix of items from Prime 93, such as steaks, and favorites from Bricco, including calamari, wedge salad, fried pickles, the goat cheese appetizer, the shrimp and scallops entree and the tomato and basil pizza.

Glenny and Jim Pulk had planned to team up on a restaurant before.

In 2015, Pulk was hoping to buy the building at Portage Lakes Drive in Coventry Township that had housed Nicoletti’s Park Place. But thatauction for that was canceled and brothers Tom, Bob and Herb Hutchison purchased the structure.

Glenny said the Prime 93-Bricco mashup “really came from him [Jim Polk] being a customer of Bricco and a fan of what we do.”
