Nancy Cooney and her daughter Grace were at City Hall to support plans for Danielle and Carlo Berdahn’s new Mediterranean bistro, Yella on the Water, opening May 1, 2019 in the former Morning Glory space on Stacy Boulevard. They opened Yella Grille in Andover (and catering) ten years ago.
The Gloucester Zoning Board approved some deck work at their waterfront dining site. Grace spoke about how hard her mom works, the bitter sweet closing, and the plans and excitement of these impressive new owners. The Berdahns made the decision easier for her mom to transition to a well-earned retirement and for customers to welcome a new eatery. The family wishes them well and long success in Gloucester, too.
