Bittersweet news from the So Salem blog on Roanoke.com: Michele’s On Main, which operated for 5 years out of the old post office on Main Street in Salem, has closed its doors.
Now, the sweet part: Chef Michael Wright and his wife are opening a Spanish-themed restaurant called Cafe Madrid in the same location!
Michele Carder, the former owner of Michele’s on Main and her own catering biz, has gotten out of both businesses altogether so she can spend more time with her children. For more info on the closing of this restaurant and the new Cafe Madrid, check out the So Salem blog.
In other restaurant news, Orange Dog has reopened on Campbell Avenue in downtown Roanoke after a brief closure. They’ve got a new menu that looks decidedly more interesting than the old one. Not that there’s anything wrong with a chili and cheese dog, but it’s nice to have more variety and somewhat healthier options on the menu, as well.
