The new ownership of the Hoover Grill will close the restaurant in a couple of weeks to prepare the space for a name change, a new look and a new menu.

The new ownership of the Hoover Grill will close the restaurant in a couple of weeks to prepare the space for a name change, a new look and a new menu.

Dave Bianconi and Jim Meadows recently purchased the Westerville store from a group of investors and will rename it Bel Lago, a rough translation of beautiful lake in Italian.

The name is appropriate, considering the waterfront view of Hoover Reservoir, Meadows said.

The roughly 6,000-square-foot restaurant opened three years ago at 170 N. Sunbury Road. Bianconi said it will close in mid-January and hopefully will reopen by Valentine's Day. He said Design Collective is creating the rustic Italian look.
