BURRILLVILLE – A professional caterer is on track to join the downtown Pascoag business community and starting next month, locals will get a taste of some of her award-winning gourmet foods.
Gina Fligg has planned the grand opening of Pamfilio’s Catering at 92 Pascoag Main St. for Monday, March 9.
Fligg previously owned Philanthropy Tea and Coffee Co. in Chepachet – and ran a catering company there as Pamfilio’s. She is also a member of Woonsocket-based Millrace Kitchen, a commercial kitchen space designed to support food entrepreneurs in starting and expanding their businesses.
Her primary focus is catering – dishes including rosemary chicken and BBQ pulled pork in portions that serve around a dozen people – but the restaurant will also offer some pre-made items for guests who stop in for a quick bite.
The menu includes breakfast options such as scrambled eggs, home fries and caramel French toast, along with gourmet deli packages, salads, and appetizers, from wings to scallops wrapped in bacon. Pasta selections include penne bolognese and baked ziti al Forno for 10 to 12 people.
Pamfilio’s will occupy the small single-story shop connecting two larger two-story buildings at 90 and 94 Pascoag Main St., a space with a unique, bright blue exterior that she’s renting from Bonnie Carter of North Providence. Carter bought the property, which includes 88-92 Pascoag Main St. from Alan Porporino for $127,000 in January 2019, according to town property records.
The chef held a soft opening this week in preparation for her full launch next month, but after Friday, Feb. 21 the business will be closed until the official opening date.
“I wanted to wait until March, but some friends talked me into it,” she told NRI NOW during a brief visit to the new space.
After the opening, the business will have regular hours Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m
