Comings and Goings on OB’s Main Street
Several new restaurants on Newport Avenue are set to open while a couple of others are still works in progress.
BBQ House Expansion to Open Publicly
David of the BBQ House family, told me that the new expansion will open to the public this Wednesday, July 29th. Then they’ll figure out, he said, when the ‘grand opening’ will be. This has been a long haul for the family and its employees (and customers) as it’s taken 2 years to get this far.
The day I was there – Friday the 24th – the place looked full – but they were all servers and bartenders in training. The expansion includes a new kitchen, a new bar and new eating areas both in and outside.
Not Much Progress at Apple Tree Market
The new Apple Tree Market on Newport has yet to open and by all looks and appearances, nothing much has progressed since our last visit.
