The owners of Pasta Plus plan to reopen their regionally lauded restaurant with a very limited menu for an unknown period of time.

Co-owner Max Mazziotti said he and his brother, Sabatino Mazziotti, are seeking a buyer for the restaurant at 209 Gorman Avenue, which they closed in January after feeding diners in Laurel for 40 years.

Max said they must reopen in order to retain the eatery’s liquor license, which has considerable value. For now, the restaurant will serve wine and pizza each Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m., beginning Sept. 7. The menu might expand a bit in consequent weeks, he said. “We’ll see how it goes.”
