After 47 years, Riccobono’s Peppermill in Metairie will close its doors for good on Sunday, September 3rd. The restaurant has been a staple for families and friends in Jefferson Parish, serving as a gather place for various occasions for almost a decade.
Owner Vincent Riccobono, who is 73, is retiring after taking over the restaurant from his parents, Josie and Joe who opened Peppermill in 1976.
Riccobono said, “The best part is carrying on the tradition started by my parents. We’ve been blessed to have a great crew that has stuck with us all these years and done a good job following our parents’ recipes. Our customers have been dedicated to the point. It’s really hard to not be here.”
It will be hard to imagine Metairie without one its most beloved restuarants as well. Soon to be as they say "ain't there no more."
