HUNTLEY – The Jameson restaurant group plans to open an Italian bistro at 11900 Freeman Road in Huntley this fall.

The group anticipates Marsala’s Italian Kitchen will open by mid-November, according to a news release. It will take over the spot formerly occupied by Niko's Grill & Pub.

Jameson Charhouse at Del Webb’s Sun City in Huntley has performed beyond expectations," Elissa Doland of the Jameson’s organization said in a news release. "We believe that Marsala’s will add a much needed mid-price Italian dining experience to the area.”

Owner Frank Bolos said the exterior of the restaurant will get a face lift and the interior will be completely overhauled by Aria Group.

"We're really excited to have a second location in Huntley, and we're really looking forward to having an Italian restaurant, which is something new for us," Bolos said.

Jameson’s Charhouse – a steakhouse chain known for its steaks, chops and fresh fish – has restaurants in Bloomingdale, Crystal Lake, Glenview, Huntley Mount Prospect, Skokie, Woodridge and Bluffton, South Carolina, according to its website.

The announcement follows several new restaurant openings in Huntley.

“The village of Huntley and its residents are pleased and eager to welcome Marsala’s as Huntley’s newest restaurant," Huntley Village President Charles Sass said in the news release. "Marsala’s ownership through the well-known and respected Jameson’s organization adds an important higher-end restaurant to the community. We believe that the community will respond very favorably to the new exterior appearance and indoor décor, as well as its Italian cuisine.”
