Silly’s Restaurant, 40 Washington Avenue, will close on September 1, 2019. The reason for the closure is that the building has been sold according to a spokesperson on site today.
The thirty-one year old business was begun by two sisters – Dierdre and Stephanie Nice. It ran very successfully for years under their ownership. But a strained relationship between the two became so contentious that the two decided to separate and go their own ways.
Stephanie stayed at Silly’s and Dierdre went her own way – basically walking away and taking none of the assets due her as a founder.
There have been several owners since then.
