TWELVE Restaurant Opening Delayed, Slightly


TWELVE Restaurant Opening Delayed Slightly. This Photo was Taken Several Days Ago.

The much anticipated opeing of the reconstructed waterfront TWELVE restaurant has been delayed slightly according to Casey Prentice, President of Prentice Hospitality Group, in an email today.  Earlier this year, plans called for the brick building to open on Memorial Day.  But that won’t happen because of supply chain issues that have delayed its opening to late June.

This redevelopment is part of the on-going redevelopment of Portland Foreside, a/k/a as 58 Fore Street on Munjoy HIll by Casey Prentice and Kevin Costello. The almost ten acre waterfront location was purchased from Phineas Sprague, Jr., who ran a boat yard, Portland Yacht Services, at that location for many years.  He has since relocated to 100 West Commercial Street and greatly expanded the yard’s capabiities with more yard space and a travel lift that hauls commercial boats and large pleasure boats not previously accommodated in the Portland area.

“Watch this space,” as cable tv reporter Rachel Maddow would say.
