A new fine-dining restaurant is coming to the city of Wadsworth.
City of Wadsworth members Chef Anthony Scolaro and Brian Dolgowicz are set to bring their new casual fine dining restaurant, The Vue, to Wadsworth in late October of this year.
Chef Scolaro has been in the restaurant industry since he was 13 and is the head chef and owner of the 111 Bistro in Medina, Ohio.
Dolgowicz has been in the restaurant business for 30 years and in restaurant management for 27 years.
They both have been community members for 15 years now and have always talked about opening up a restaurant together since building houses next to each other in 2008.
“The timing was kinda just right and things just fell into place and we were able to get together and start this new project,” Scolaro said.
“It’s really God’s plan,” Dolgowicz said. “Everything just kinda fell into place.”
Chef Scolaro will be the head chef and co-owner with Dolgowicz.

The Vue is set to be a 1920’s 1920s-themed restaurant and will be opening on the Northwest corner of the square. The Vue will open for dinner at 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, in hopes of a unique dining experience without the added competition of local businesses.
“The hope is to give the residents a phenomenal eating experience without having to leave town,” Dolgowicz said.
The Vue’s name comes from the name of the restaurant that made Chef Scolaro realize he wanted to be a chef because of the view looking out the front window of the restaurant into the square.
The first menu will consist of dishes that inspired Chef Scolaro.
“The beginning will be all about foods that imprinted me growing up and foods that imprinted everyone involved,” Scolaro said. “After that, I mean the skies are the limit, there’s nothing we won’t do cuisine-wise.”
The menus will be accommodating to allergies. They chose to bring their restaurant, The Vue to Wadsworth because of their involvement in the community.
“We live here and our kids go to school here, and we wanted to bring something to our hometown that we could be proud of,” Scolaro said.
The Vue is set to have 60-65 seats and will start with soft openings for friends and family prior to the opening of the restaurant to the public.
Scolaro and Dolgowicz are excited to get the doors open for Wadsworth to see what they have been creating and open a restaurant for regulars to come and enjoy meals.
