What a boring world it would be if everything stayed the same forever!!! Change can be for the better or for the worse. I have learned of a couple upcoming changes in Sanford that I think will be very exciting:
If you have read this blog for very long, you know that Renalds is one of my most favorite restaurants in town and I am almost always there on Thursday nights for dinner!!! Well, Chef Hamm – the chef that has worked with Joni Martin (owner) to prepare the Thursday night dinner menu at Renalds for a long time now – has bought the restaurant and will be managing it for himself under the name “Cafe 121” beginning on Father’s Day!!! As much as I hate to see the restaurant change from it’s current quaint setting, luscious desserts, and special dinner menus, I am very much anticipating what Chef Hamm will do with it!!! If it had to be sold, I couldn’t think of a better person to take it over!!! He plans to have a weekly Sunday Brunch, a Coffee Bar, and be open for lunch on Saturday – those are the big logistical changes – he also has a totally new menu that looks scrumptious!! I’ll get in to Renalds as much as I can between now that the change to enjoy the current Renalds and will anxiously await the opportunity to begin enjoying the new Cafe 121!!!
Myra’s Kitchen (another favorite of mine) has been doing such a good business – and rightfully so – they are so good!!! In fact, the business has been so good – especially at lunch – that they are running out of space!!! Sounds like a good problem to have, but Myra and Buddy are beginning plans to solve it! They are starting to draw up ideas to expand the size of their restaurant – they are going to build out the side to make the dining room larger and make room to serve more customers!! Sounds great to me!!!
So – at least two good changes to look forward to!!!
