Watch for the opening date of the new restaurant in downtown Pocomoke City. It's hard to believe that I have been taking photographs of this spot located on the Pocomoke River since December 2011 - when ground was first turned over to begin the foundation work.
The kitchen appliances have been delivered and are ready to be installed. Tables and chairs are there and the bar is just about completed!
Landscaping was provided by Douglas Guns, Superintendent of the Winter Quarters Golf Course, and his crew. Douglas Guns and his crew, along with the assistance of some wonderful, hardworking people from Pocomoke High School, are responsible for the beauty in the Mini Park on the corner of Second Street and Market Street in downtown Pocomoke City.
Stayed tuned for an opening date! The wait is almost over........
The photos I posted the last time showed the restaurant in downtown Pocomoke City all wrapped in Tyvek and just sitting there beside the Pocomoke River in the cold winter weather in Pocomoke City.
But the action now is on the inside!!!
I had imagined that at some point in time my bi-weekly trips to the growing restaurant would end but they didn't! Councilman Malloy made it possible for me to venture in to take photos.....after all he recognizes that this is my project, it means alot to me and after all...... it's his district!
We went in through the back of the restaurant oesn't look like much has been done (to me). 'm sure there has...Wiring is being run, kitchen seems to be making progress....
And there are windows, windows, windows!!! I like the thought of looking out towards the river from inside.
The restaurant has been designed so that there are decks at both ends.
When completed this restaurant will be an asset to downtown Pocomoke City. From what I am hearing contruction is ahead of schedule. The city is still accepting proposals from interested and qualified restaurateurs and will be until January 31, 2012. So if you are interested you don't have much time.
When completed the restaurant will seat at least 140 guests with the decks to hold an additional 40. The city plans to have the restaurant in operaton by June 2012. Information on the qualifications for being the restaurant operation go HEREor www.cityofpocomoke.com
Hmmm.... I wonder how they will select a name for it.
I'd like to thank the two gentlemen working inside the restaurant, for allowing me to take pictures. Sorry I didn't get back to help sweep up.
