Public Market, a Middletown icon from the days when horses still clippity clopped on Main Street, will be closing. The newest owner, Josh Morris, did a helluva job keeping up the quality, service and traditions at “Public’s.”
It’s not clear if someone else will take over, if Josh will sell, or even a closing date. Get down there, wish them well, and get the best damn grinder in Middletown while you still can can.
Started further down Liberty, migrated across-ish from Aresco’s. Third shooting we know of in a few months (one being near Weswings, the other caused the shooter to stalk his prey to Middlesex Hospital).
Middeltown PD had no comment, RJ from Aresco’s didn’t know anything. Not a great start for the boy mayor. Here’s what we do know: The parties involved were NOT arguing about their study group! Be careful out there people.
We’re still confused by “Sicilian New Haven style pizza,” guessing the owner is trying to hit all the trendy buzzwords. Look for lots of hipster menu-speak like “sourced” “currated” “notes of” “hand held.” Overall, nice to see this project moving along during these unprecedented times.
While they still feature it, go to Perkatory, order a large Basiljuice (💀🌿 This chilling basil and peppermint sparkling lemonade).
Sure, have a few sips on your way home, but save some for later. A few ounces of your favrorite gin, maybe a sprig of Thai basil, and you have just the thinG to “bring you back to life” in this schfitzy weather! Clinque!
Covid-19 beats Cafë 56, that is. With so many working from home, and a slow lunch trade, Cafë 56 will be closing. Home to righteous empanadas, Tacandwiches (A combination of Latin American taco fillings served in a Portuguese roll, giving you the great flavors of the tacos you love with the convenience of a sandwich), and the best biscuits in Middletown, Cafë 56 will be very missed. Vaya con Dios Friend.
Well maybe you’ll have to wait a few weeks more. Neil’s Donuts, that mecca of baked goods from Wallingford is opening an outpost in Middletown, corner of Warwick and 17. Not happy just making a superior donut, Neil’s also offers danish, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and great attitude free coffee.
