Jerry Brown and Henry Colangelo are singing “We’re back in the business again,” as they greet new and old clients at the recently-opened Smugglers Italian Bistro in the English Village on Highway 101 at Hoffeldt Lane.

After 10 years operating his Smuggler’s Cove Restaurant at the Port of Brookings Harbor, Brown said, “It’s a change of location and I’m downsizing a bit.”

Chef Colangelo, former owner of the Italian Cowboy Restaurant in Brookings, returned to Brookings just in time to help Brown open the new Italian steak house.

Brown emphasized that the new restaurant will be only the third restaurant in Oregon to serve USDA prime grade beef. Colangelo stressed that, in addition to the finest available steaks and prime rib, Italian-American specialties will also be featured.

Brown said about the new restaurant, which opened March 19, “Lots of people don’t know we’re open. But those who do know have been back quite a few times already.”

In addition to fine dining, Brown said, “We have pretty good wine selections from Oregon and Italy, and we have a Sports Bar.”

He said they will be featuring sports on their two 50-inch plasma screens, for their sports-loving fans.

Within approximately two weeks, a special room, with accommodations for 40 to 50 diners will be available for all types of catered events.

Brown and Colangelo are looking forward to being part of the  Second Saturday Art Walk, featuring the work of local artists.

Brown suggested, “Come in, take a look at our menu, and let us know how you like our accommodations in our bar and dining room. We stress good service, comfortable seating, and the highest quality, well-prepared meals.”

The steak house is open from 3:30 to 10 p.m.

  • Market leaders seen taking S&P 500 to 2,000
    Reaching it ahead of schedule is the latest affirmation that stocks are widely preferred to bonds, even with further upside seen as limited as the Federal Reserve remains on track to end its bond-buying stimulus program in October.. The level has more psychological than fundamental significance, and it could prompt market participants to consider whether their holdings have become stretched. The "2,000 (level) has no fundamental significance outside of suggesting that stocks are fully valued and getting more so all the time," said David Joy, chief market strategist at Ameriprise Financial in Boston. Both defensive and cyclical stocks have led at times, but traders expect technology and healthcare names, the market's current leaders, to drive it over 2,000.
  • Fed's Yellen calls for caution on rates; Draghi says ECB ready to act
    The Federal Reserve should move cautiously in deciding when to raise interest rates given the U.S. In a speech at the Fed's annual central bank conference, Yellen laid out in detail why she feels the unemployment rate alone is inadequate to evaluate the strength of the jobs market and why the central bank needs to step gingerly. Her remarks were followed by a speech by the head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, who said the ECB was ready to use all the tools at its disposal to lift euro zone inflation if it continued to drop.
