L’Espalier chef to open restaurant at Holmes Beverly.

BEVERLY, MA—(March 8, 2019)– Salem News.
Frank McClelland, renowned Boston chef and owner of L’Espalier, is bringing his culinary talents right to our front door.  Soon residents will be able to walk downstairs and grab prepared meals to-go, or sit down for dinner on the outdoor patio.

McClelland, who closed L’Espalier in December after being in business for 30 years, lives on the North Shore himself and wanted to open a restaurant closer this his home and his primary vendors.  

While the restaurant is yet-to-be-named, it will seat 148 and serve “New England heritage food, with a bit of European food”, include outdoor seating and a grab-and-go grocery store.  

“He’s definitely world-renowned, so for little ole Beverly to be able to attract someone of his caliber is really going to be special,” Beverly Main Streets Executive Director Gin Wallace said.Salem News

The restaurant and grocery store will be located side-by-side on the first floor of Holmes Beverly with easy access to the MBTA parking garage and steps from the commuter rail.

McClelland’s restaurant will be a welcome addition to Rantoul street, and a great addition to the vibrant foodie and art scene in downtown Beverly. Holmes Beverly residents have already embraced their ideal location offering a short train ride from Boston, in a walkable downtown, close to the beach, and now add in a world-renowned chef to the building. It’s a great place to call home.

The six-story Holmes Beverly building opened last fall and includes a roof deck, library, fireplace hearth, fitness and yoga spaces, a covered dog run, and a “pocket park” for outdoor dining, according to its website.
