One of the restaurants coming into the 3rd Avenue Northwest Park has been announced.
According to a release from the Nordblom Company, which owns the property, said the company has signed a 8,500 square foot lease with the Webber Restaurant Group. The Webber Restaurant Group owns the Gibbet Hill Grill in Groton, the Scarlet Oak Tavern in Hingham, and Fireside Catering in Burlington. The Burlington Planning Board approved the project on April 4.
"It is a pioneer in the farm-to-restaurant movement, being one of the only restaurant groups in the country that includes a farm – the 100-acre Gibbet Hill Farm in Groton – as a part of its organization," the release states.
The restaurant in Northwest Park will be The Bancroft, a high-end steak house with seasonal, locally-sourced menu options. The restaurant will appeal to the youthful, urban crowd, the release states.
“We are excited to welcome Webber Restaurant Group to 3rdAve”, said Douglas Wynyard, Senior Vice President for Nordblom Company. “This group has an excellent track record of executing sophisticated restaurant concepts and the Burlington market is anxiously awaiting the arrival of The Bancroft, Webber’s high-end steakhouse, at the gateway of the 3rd Ave. development.”
The Northwest Park will be anchored by a Wegmans grocery store and will feature a Kings bowling alley.
Wegmans - Wegmans, which has signed a 30 year lease with Nordblom with options to renew, is planning to build a 135,000 square foot facility with adjacent parking for 800 vehicles. The plans include a 14,000 square foot mezzanine overlooking a food court, an outdoor café and outdoor cooking classes. Patrons will be able to enter and exit Wegmans from Third Avenue, Fourth Avenue or from Network Drive via Second Avenue.
Kings - The Kings bowling alley will feature a 296-seat restaurant in a 27,000 square foot building and will have 24 bowling alleys. The total occupancy is over 600 people. The location will feature a full bar and at-alley food and drink service. During the daytime Kings will be available for birthday parties. There will also be a function room for business meetings and gatherings.
