Restaurant comings and goings at both ends of town: Pier 23 Kitchen at 23 East Main closed and is for sale | Trio at 64 Main Street closed – new owners fresh start in the new year #GloucesterMA

Yes, that's a water inner harbor view_Pier 23 Kitchen restaurant for sale_23 East Main Street_Gloucester MA_20191230_photograph copyright © c ryan.jpg

Pier 23 Kitchen on 23 East Main Street closed. The restaurant is for sale: contact (978) 887-9895. Pier 23 owners and AJ’s contributed major upgrades and renovations at this busy spot. (Mooters, LaRosas, and Cacciatores preceded AJ’s at the Harbor.)

The new sign for Oliver’s Harbor Restaurant and Bar features tiles at each end and heralds a change in ownership at 64 Main Street. The Bragas sold Trio which they had reconfigured after opening Italiano Restaurant in the former La Trattoria space and completing a major renovation and build out replete with a new industrial kitchen. Last year they added additional outdoor seating.

Painting with Pauline LIVE at Trio Restaurant and Bar

Check out Painting with Pauline LIVE at Trio Restaurant and Bar, Thursday 6:30-7:30pm, 64 Main Street, hosted by Bridge Cape Ann and Pauline’s Gifts. The weather forecast looks perfect for a fun event at that pretty outside deck.

Italiano’s has evolved into Trio: “Owners Deo and Paula Braga are creating a legacy of high quality family dining here on Cape Ann.  The acclaimed Azorean celebrates the classic cuisine of the Azores… and now they present the Trio Restaurant, Portuguese, American and Italian cuisine. Trio celebrates Italian American and Portuguese dishes, the ones we all know and love, crafted from the best ingredients, with the professional flair of chef Manny Lapa.  From salad to dessert, the menu is familiar, comforting, and always delicious.”

Nice touch that high geranium on Trio’s building.

The Bragas’s highly anticipated second stand alone restaurant, the new Italiano Restaurant and Bar, will be opening at 64 Main Street well before people flock to our coast this summer. The former space of La Trattoria is being transformed by RS Construction which also built the Dunkin Donuts in Magnolia and the Azorean’s gorgeous bar expansion and function addition. The new restaurant has been under major construction for months because the build out is much more than a revamp.  The small kitchen is GONE. The entire former function space in the back is a brand spanking new kitchen.

In a city of incredibly good eats how do you make yours stand out?

An excellent reputation helps: the Bragas opened Azorean in 2007 which quickly established a legion of loyal customers with its unique and exceptional cuisine. Besides quality, hard work and experience how about that awesome historic West End location. Italiano Restaurant joins a tipping point where Gloucester’s West End meets Boston’s North End. Italy Magazine I propose your next article in the series, Where to find Italy in America?- Gloucester’s West End!
