Dinner reservations at Michelangelo’s Italian Restaurant in Conway’s downtown are a charity affair until Thursday.The restaurant closed its doors Sunday, Aug. 14, with plans to officially open as Michelangelo’s Seafood and Pasta after a few days of menu alterations, minor cosmetic changes and staff training.Customers subscribing to the business’ e-mailings were notified that they may attend V.I.P. nights with dinner reservations Tuesday and Wednesday for a "trial run" of the restaurant’s new offerings, and a portion of proceeds from their meal would be donated to the American Cancer Society and Camp Aldersgate to provide children and teens fighting cancer with a "memorable camping experience."Mike Kraft, managing partner with Mike Coats, said that the proceeds of the V.I.P. dinners support the Camp Hope program, which "gives children and teens fighting cancer the opportunity to meet new friends, to spend time outdoors, and to forget about treatments and hospitals for a time."Kraft said Tuesday afternoon that Wednesday’s reservation time, 5-8 p.m. was "filling up fast."All who wish to support the cause and get a look a new menu items are encouraged to inquire Thursday, when Michelangelo’s Seafood and Pasta again opens at regular business hours, or inquire Wednesday for reservations by calling 329-7278."What we’ve done is expand our seafood selections. We have more seafood than pasta dishes now, but we still have all the favorites that people have wanted," Kraft said.New dishes include Grouper Florentine, Hahnzo Halibut, and filet kabobs made custom to order.Kraft said that some dishes have deviated from the Italian theme, but that the influence is still recognizable.(Staff writer Courtney Spradlin can be reached by e-mail at courtney.spradlin@thecabin.net or by phone at 505-1236.
