At about 3pm today, an email arrived regarding my last post that merely said: Grace. Sure enough, as I drove by the restaurant, the windows were found to be blacked out with curtains
The front door had signs turning away potential customers
The receiving area door had a note pointed guests and purveyors to use the front entrance
But, truly the most subtle of signs were right out on Chestnut Street
Now, whether there’s any weight to the rumor that it could be a ‘Throwdown,’ or that Bobby Flay was somewhere in the former church, it makes sense that the Food Network would be filming one of their shows there as the venue has one of the most beautifully done restaurant interiors in New England. It is also unknown exactly where Cranberry Island Kitchen and their Whoopie Pies fit into this whole picture but, if it is a ‘Throwdown,’ all the luck in the world to them.
