Liquidator: Saletti’s demolition March 1
A Minden auction house is liquidating Saletti’s Restaurant, as well as selling pieces of the building that house the popular eatery.
“We will be liquidating the entire contents of Saletti’s, including building materials right off the side of the building due to the building being scheduled to be demolished March 1,” according to a Friday Facebook post by Great Estate Liquidators LLC.
The restaurant is scheduled to close on Feb. 14.
“Building supplies include clear exterior cedar siding, windows, doors, decking, hand rails, river rocks, exposed beam trusses, interior clear cedar siding and interior doors,” the post said. “If it can be moved, it’s for sale.”
Faith and John Saletti have operated the former Fiona’s since 2006. They sold the property to Carson Valley Inn owner Mike Pegram in December.
The restaurant occupies the former Graunke Warehouse, built in 1919, according to Wynne Maule’s “Minden, Nevada: The story of a Unique Town.”
It was extensively remodeled in 1982 and dubbed the Atrium. That business didn’t last long, closing in 1985.
In 1988, the Carson Valley Inn opened it as Fiona’s.
