La Morra Owners Finalize Purchase of Historic Sherborn Inn

Josh and Jennifer Ziskin will reopen the fine dining establishment as Heritage of Sherborn this summer.

The pub at Heritage of Sherborn is under construction, seen here housing kitchen equipment.

A Colonial-era inn and restaurant in Sherborn now officially belongs to Josh and Jennifer Ziskin, the couple that runs La Morra in Brookline, Boston Restaurant Talk reports.

The Sherborn selectboard transferred the Sherborn Inn's liquor license, and the license of its adjacent wine shop, to the Ziskins back in the fall. The Sherborn Inn, located at 33 N. Main St., just officially closed to make room for the Ziskins' planned renovations. The new owners' concept is called Heritage of Sherborn, and it appears that the wine shop next door will continue to be called Sherborn Out.

The Ziskins told the Dover-Sherborn Press that Heritage of Sherborn's menu will feature farm-inspired, American cuisine, a departure from the Italian food chef Josh Ziskin focuses on at La Morra. The new restaurant and the shop next door will also focus on wine, and Jennifer Ziskin, a certified Italian wine specialist, said she plans to bring in more than 100 new bottles.

In addition to wine, Sherborn Out will be "an extension of the inn," Jennifer Ziskin said to the Press. "We have ideas to sell our own pasta, bread, pates and jams — to name a few."

Renovation of the building built in the 1700s began earlier this month, and the Heritage of Sherborn team said today they anticipate reopening the wine and provision shop mid-April, while the new inn and restaurant will be up and running this summer, hopefully by June.
