After two years in the sprawling basement of the JDK Design building at Burlington’s 47 Maple Street, coffee and bicycling mecca Maglianero will move up one floor to the gallery space that faces the street.
The café will feature wooden counters along the front windows, as well as a brew bar where visitors can watch their pour-overs in action — and ask questions.
“We’re aiming for more of a social atmosphere, a place for people to meet and talk about ideas over a cup of coffee,” says Corey Goldsmith, Maglianero’s manager. He notes that artwork will still be exhibited in the space.
Maglianero’s move should be complete by late December.
The restaurant at Randolph’s Three Stallion Inn has operated under a number of names and chefs over the years. But, judging by the dense, happy crowds on a recent Friday night, its latest incarnation may stick.
Willy Walker and his wife, Beth Umba, reopened the inn’s eatery as Willy B’s Tavern earlier this month. They rolled out a menu that blends whimsical pub fare such as blooming onions with more offbeat plates, such as grilled coconut-curry-marinated chicken with pineapple and fresh seafood cakes called Ocean Biscuits. Their locavore ethos doesn’t end with the food — Lost Nation Brewing Gose and Drop-In Brewing’s Sunshine and Hoppiness flow behind the bar.
It’s full circle for the couple, who met 20 years ago while working at the Three Stallion Inn before leaving to start a catering company, Travelin’ Willy B’s, which they still operate.
The tavern is open for dinner at 665 Stock Farm Road on Friday and Saturday nights.
