From Morning Glory to Yella on the Water | Together at City Hall finalizing restaurant transition (targeting May 1 2019 opening!)

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.

Who is in the Know?

We mentioned the other day on the most recent podcast (from the gorgeous new Beauport Hotel) that a new restaurant is coming to Rockport.

The Feather & Wedge Restaurant and Bar (happy dance) is scheduled to open sometime this summer.  I honestly don’t know a thing about it.  Who can fill us in?  I’d love to know more!

Market Restaurant At Lobster Cove- The GMG Interview

Never have I seen such an excitement among online foodies as the one created over the past month for the newly opened Market Restaurant At Lobster Cove. Check the video for the inside skinny and the slide show at the end of the video

My breakfast sandwich was fantastic and it looks like The Mrs will be doing a recon mission for dinner with her girlfriends next week. I’d say that she would get you some great photos from that dinner but I think we all know that when the Mrs gets together with her merry band of alcoholics friends it will be more about the wine than the picture taking. 🙂
