Riccardo’s On Broadway is opening downtown in the former home of Shady Jack's Saloon at 1432 N. Broadway. The Italian eatery is a new iteration of Ricardo’s Italian Cafe, which was in Lafayette Square (now the home of Polite Society at 1923 Park Ave.) and closed nearly a decade ago. The new restaurant will unveil a revamped menu at its grand opening. 

The eatery is being brought back to life by Adams, her two sons Tim and Tom, along with her ex-husband, Mark Adams, with whom Michelle operated the original restaurant. Her current husband, Rich Dunnavant, is also involved in the restaurant. Adams said each member of the team has a background in the restaurant industry and wanted to open Riccardo’s as a way for everyone to get back into the restaurant business together, as well as an opportunity to build their family’s legacy.
