Construction under way.

There is construction going on and an “Opening Soon” sign outside of the former Verona Grille on Route 70 in Shrewsbury, right over the Worcester line. The new restaurant will be called Billy’s Pub and is owned by Jimmy Larsen. According to Larsen, he has done extensive renovations, including putting in a new kitchen. Watch for a late June opening. The Verona Grille closed more than a year ago.
