Below is some of the latest news from the Wilmington restaurant scene:
- Cucina LaRosa’s (228 Main Street) is getting closer to opening at the old Panera Bread location, inside Wilmington Plaza. The 100-seat, full-service restaurant will be in front of the Select Board later this month with a request for an alcohol license. The restaurant’s floor plans were already approved by the Board of Health in March.
- Wilmington House of Pizza (325 Main Street) is under new ownership. New owners Mohammad Alam and Asad Amin received their common victualer license — a required license which allows for restaurant seating — from the Select Board last month. The owners told the Board they plan on keeping everything — including the menu — the same.
- Mona’s Kitchen (66-U Concord Street) is also under new ownership. New owners Fatima Carna and Justino Guarrero Guzman received their common victualer license from the Select Board earlier this week.
- Wilmington’s Matt Gillis, owner of G’s Eat LLC, recently received a Hawk & Pedle License from the Select Board. Gillis is starting a Food Truck company. He likened it to a “snack shack on wheels” serving simple food that is quickly prepared, including pizza, hot dogs, grilled cheese, popcorn, and more. Gillis hopes to launch in town this summer.
- While As Good As It Gets (35 Lowell Street) remains open in Wilmington, it recently closed its location in Acton, according to the Boston Restaurant Talk website.
- The Wilmington Economic Development Committee’s “It Starts Here” marketing campaign recently shared the following news via the town’s social media accounts: “Excited to share a new construction restaurant opportunity at the corner of Lowell Street and Woburn Street! With a robust commercial presence, this prime restaurant location has everything to help you and your business thrive.” The multi-use site development will feature approximately 50 market-rate Class A apartments, approximately 13,000 feet of curated retail, and a freestanding drive-thru pad site (likely a bank). What restaurant would you like to see go in at 203 Lowell Street, near Lucci’s Plaza?
- Phantom Gourmet shouted out AJ’s Kitchen popular Chicken Parm Calzone on social media earlier this week.
- Happy belated 9-year anniversary to Tremezzo Ristorante (2 Lowell Street), which opened in Wilmington on April 22, 2014.
- The Wilmington Farmers Market (140 Middlesex Avenue, Swain Green) will be hosting TWO alcohol vendors during its upcoming 2023 season, which runs on Sundays, from 10am to 1pm, June 11 to October 1. Westford-based micro-winery Aaronap Cellars received the necessary license from the Select Board earlier this week to sell bottles of wine at the market. At the same meeting, Bedford-based Blisspoint Meadery also had its license request granted. Blisspoint creates mead (alcohol from honey), and sells cider-like and wine-like products. Aaronap, a returning vendor, and Blisspoint, a new vendor, will alternate weeks at the market.
