Carrabba's Italian Grill opens at mall Sept. 22

In just one week, Carrabba’s Italian Grill will open its newest location at the Westfield Connecticut Post Mall at 1201 Post Boston Road.

The new Milford restaurant will open its doors at 11 a.m. on Sept. 22.

The new location features a design that mixes traditional and contemporary elements inspired by the look and feel of Italy. The 5994-square-foot location features an open kitchen, a relaxed and casual dining room with family tables, a modern Italian bar and patio dining.

“We’re excited to be one of the featured dining destinations at the Westfield Connecticut Post Mall,” said James LaChance, managing partner of the Milford Carrabba’s. “We’re looking forward to becoming a new neighbor and sharing our Italian hospitality with the community.”

Carrabba’s Italian Grill will donate 50% of opening day sales (up to $5,000.00) to benefit the Woodruff Family YMCA.

“We are excited to welcome Carrabba’s to Milford,” said Charlie Clifford, district executive of the Woodruff Family Y. “We are proud to have been chosen as their partner. It is through the kindness of friends like Carrabba’s that make it a pleasure to be part of the Milford Community.”

To help serve the community, Carrabba’s Italian Grill has hired nearly 140 area residents to join the Carrabba’s team. Carrabba’s will open for lunch at 11 a.m. immediately following a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:45 a.m. with Mayor Benjamin Blake and the Milford Chamber of Commerce.
