FROM BARBECUE TO BREAD, NEW BUSINESSES COMING TO DOWNTOWN CAMBRIDGE
Downtown Cambridge will be adding some bold new flavors this fall. At least four new businesses plan to open downtown in the months ahead:
• Now open! Maggie's Hatbox with antiques, collectibles, decorative arts, and eclectic treasures at 510 Poplar St.
• Now open! Choptank Charlie's Emporium is offering tuxedo and wedding suit rentals plus an array home decor, collectibles, and artworks at 516 Poplar Street.
Nose 2 Tail is a new venture for Patrick Fanning, chef at the High Spot, and Brett Summers, who has restored both buildings. Nose 2 Tail will be a BBQ restaurant/charcuterie with house-cured meats and such dishes as Carolina-style baby back and country ribs and brisket and Eastern Shore-style chicken. They'll be featuring sauces from Crabi Gras. There will also be a butcher shop focused mostly on pork. Keep up with the news by liking Nose 2 Tail on Facebook.
Maggie's Hatbox hopes to open in October with antiques, collectibles, decorative arts, and eclectic treasures. Stay tuned for details.
