Garlic Clove moves to larger location

Garlic Clove Italian Eatery is moving less than a mile away to a larger space at 4534 Washington Road, in Evans, according to owner Jeff Freehof.

The space in the Eagle Pointe shopping center was formerly occupied by Mi Rancho, which recently moved to another location.

Freehof said the building offers a bar area and two private meeting rooms, something the 4461 Washington Road location did not have.

Freehof said customers have had to wait for a table on weekends, and when the new location became available it seemed like the perfect fit.

The restaurant is being renovated, and Freehof expects to move in before Masters Week.

Consumer borrowing rose by $17.8 billion in January, the Federal Reserve said Wednesday. That followed similar gains in December and November.

The gains for those three months were the largest in a decade and helped consumer borrowing climb
to a seasonally adjusted
$2.5 tril­lion.
