Since 1989, Giuseppe’s Pizzeria & Ristoranté in Meredith, NH has been serving up great live music with its award-winning Italian cuisine and festive charm. The restaurant features well-known local and regional musicians seven nights a week, and has become one of most popular and loved destinations in the Lakes Region. With the addition of its new room, “The Grotto,” Giuseppe’s can now host even more special events, and has lined up some national touring acts for its exciting new Dinner Concert Series.
Julie Gnerre-Bourgeois has owned and operated Giuseppe’s in the Mill Falls Marketplace for 21 years. She takes pride in having an establishment that features live nightly musical entertainment, and is excited about the restaurant’s expansion in May, which will provide the space for concerts that they haven’t had until now. “We recently created “The Grotto” at Giuseppe’s, a beautiful room in the original foundation of the old Linen Mill at Mill Falls,” says Julie. “This room has character with old stone, brick, wood, wrought iron and canvas.”
The Grotto is available for private parties and wine dinners, and is regularly hosting Karaoke nights, DJ nights, and Live Band nights. The new room provides an intimate concert setting, and will be the home to the new Dinner Concert Series beginning in March. The series will feature national touring artists such as David Francey, Willy Porter, and Jeffrey Foucault. Julie is also planning a local artist concert series for the future. Food and beverages from the menu and full bar will be served during all shows.
“I am offering each artist 100% of the ticket sales and would be so pleased if we could fill the room for them,” says Julie. “These touring artists work so hard, and are so very talented. My interest is in sharing their music with the folks from around The Lakes, Mountains, and Seacoast Regions of New Hampshire.”
