Every family knows the feeling of looking at the calendar and realizing that you have three different soccer practices all at the same time for each one of your kids as well as a committee meeting and a ballet class. On days like these, a home-cooked dinner is not in the cards.
The Bedford Marketplace has both new and returning restaurants that are opening in the new buildings. Some are already open for business and others are on their way soon.
A new restaurant that has just opened has had success in other locations across Massachusetts such as Concord, Belmont, and Natick. Comella’s Restaurant serves homemade Italian food including pizzas, pasta dishes, and salads. Arguably a big draw is a whole cheese pizza for only $5. Their pasta dishes increase in price but are still affordable options for an easy night out. The Bedford location quietly opened the Thursday before the July 4 holiday weekend. Their hours are 11 am to 9 pm every night of the week, according to their website. Inside the restaurant there are many tables, as well as a bar area with televisions playing.
Bruegger’s Bagels was present in the previous plaza and has taken up residence on the back end of the first building, opposite Marshall’s and Red Heat Tavern. Inside Bruegger’s, there is also a new Jamba Juice, which was not available in the previous plaza. Bruegger’s is serving the same type of bagels and coffee as before the renovation. Jamba Juice serves smoothies and juices. The Bruegger’s Bagels and Jamba Juice combination is open seven days a week. Monday through Friday the hours are from 5:30 am to 9 pm. The hours on Saturday and Sunday are from six in the morning to seven at night.
Another returning establishment is b.good. This restaurant features locally sourced ingredients from area farms. They serve burgers and salads, as well as kale and grain bowls and sandwiches. In addition to regular beef burgers, b.good also hasturkey and veggie burger options. b. good is open seven days a week. From Monday through Saturday their hours are 11 am to 9 pm but on Sundays they close at eight.
Red Heat Tavern, another brand new restaurant to the Bedford Marketplace,opened in November of last year.
So when you are running from one end of town to the other, from soccer to ballet, or you just do not feel like cooking, stop by one of the many, newly opened restaurants to be found at the Bedford Marketplace.
