Cross Keys Inn sold to Andora group owner
Cross Keys Inn in Indiana Township has been acquired by Mike McMullen of the Andora Restaurant Group. No sales price was disclosed. Robert and Michael Uricchio, owners of Cross Keys, will continue to operate the inn and restaurant until the change in ownership in April.
This marks McMullen's third Andora location, the others are located in the former Colony restaurant site at 1928 Cochran Rd., Scott, and at 1616 Mount Nebo Road, Ohio Township. The Uricchio brothers said they are selling the Cross Keys Inn, which they acquired in 2009, because "they are involved in several other ventures and felt the time was right to sell, having accomplished their goal of restoring the inn."
The Uricchios, who formerly owned Laforet restaurant in Highland Park, which they closed in 2007, renovated the facility, opened in 1850 as a stagecoach inn, maintaining its original character including the rustic pine bar and log-burning fireplace in the library.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
