Quarterdeck in Maynard - Gone?

Kat May 13, 2008 09:08 AM

Drove by yesterday and there is a big sign in the window that says "Cast Iron Kitchen". Is Quarterdeck gone and this is a new place? The restaurant itself looked open. Anyone have the scoop?

    Partial scoop - restaurant has changed hands, the fish/seafood market is still there. Haven't heard anything about the new restaurant itself yet.

      Thanks for the info. I guess if I read our local paper I'd have known! I wonder what the new place will be?

            Haven't been to Maynard in years. Did have a few good meal at QD though. Never did make it to was it Grappa their other restaurant.

            I was very surprised for some reason to read that the SitnBull closed, I thought that was a real local place that always had something going on. I never was there at night, but the few lunches I had there meeting others was always fine for what it was.

            Acton/Concord/Maynard I always think could support a lot more really decent restaurants. I used to work in W Acton so I was more familair with what available for lunch.

            Gosh I remember planning so many lunch partys at the old was it the Stage Coach-GREAT pizza- on 2A now it is Ginger something or other I think.

            Good luck, hope you have a good meal.

              We loved the Sit n Bull. It closed not due to unpopularity, but because of the new nightclub safety regulations that went into effect last year due to the RI tragedy. The cost of the changes was prohibitive due to the small size of the club. They had a huge party on the last day it was open!

      I worked in the fish market when I was in High School. The brothers were an interesting bunch of guys...

      The food was always good, IMHO, and the brothers were always making sure that the cleaning processes were in place to make sure the fish was fresh.

      Dang, wish I would have known about this, so I could've gone back over there and had my usual lunch when I worked there on the weekends -- a fried haddock sandwich with lettuce tomato and mayo -- mmm mmm -- it was always really tasty.

      One thing I won't miss: preparing soft shell crabs.
