'A great restaurant scene'

In wake of downtown closings come three new places to eat in Beverly

(Continued)

BEVERLY —

Wallace said the downtown restaurant scene is still thriving at night. Beverly Main Streets and the Beverly Chamber of Commerce will attempt to promote the business even more by hosting their first Restaurant Week in October, modeled after a program in Salem. Participating restaurants will offer three courses for $25 or two courses for $15 from Oct. 7 through 11 and Oct. 14 through 18.

Main Streets is assisting EJ Cabots and Prides Bar & Grille with grants through its facade improvement program.

Paras, who in addition to Soma and Barrel House owns Wrapture on Cabot Street, said it remains to be seen how the new configuration of restaurants will work out.

“It’ll be different,” he said. “Whether it will be better or worse, who knows?”
