In 1961, the original Fayís Knotty Pine was established in the north end of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Fay immigrated to America from Italy with her family when she was only twelve-years-old and spent most of her younger years working in restaurants all around the country. She and her brother Mike decided to open a restaurant together where they could share all their familyís delicious, home cooked recipes. The restaurant has truly been a family affair because Mike eventually went on to open his own place and Fayís daughter Evelyn began working with her.Fay retired in 1983 while Evelyn continued to work in the restaurant serving her delicious food. In 1998, Evelynís children, Matt and Elizabeth, who grew up working and learning at Fayís Knotty Pine decided to open a much larger restaurant in Dartmouth, Massachusetts and named in Fayís Restaurant in honor of their beloved grandmother. The Knotty Pine has since had to close its doors, but Matt continues his grandmother and motherís legacy by serving the same great recipes and cuisine. Today, Fayís Restaurant has expanded what Fay started and now offers an extensive menu full of Italian and American favorites.
