FROM SEACOAST ONLINE: Construction work continues by the Pepperrell Cove Group on four new businesses in the buildings that housed Frisbee’s Market and Cap’n Simeon’s restaurant, with the convenience store, Provisions, eying an early March opening.
Along with Provisions, the Pepperrell Cove Group will open two restaurants. Frisbee’s Wharf will open behind the Cap’n Simeon’s building on a crushed oyster shell patio, as a way of paying homage to the Frisbee family, whose local roots extend back to the 1700s. The other restaurant will be named Bistro 1828 in the Frisbee’s Market building. The View at Pepperrell Cove inside Cap’n Simeon’s building will be a two-floor function space for receptions and parties for approximately 140 guests.
The Pepperrell Cove Group includes AJ’s Wood Grill Pizza co-owners Henry and Eides Ares, local developer and former AJ’s owner Donna Ryan, retired York school teacher Ann Kendall and architect Carla Goodknight, founder of CJ Architects in Portsmouth. Their vision is to rehabilitate the Pepperrell Cove site as a maritime destination for both locals and tourists, according to Goodknight.
