Remy Sports Bar and Pub Eyeing New Bedford Site
A Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar and Pub could be in New Bedford’s future. According to the Fall River Herald News, managing partners John O’Rouke, John Mascia, and Red Sox legend Jerry Remy are considering building a restaurant at the Riverside Landing development, near Market Basket. O’Rouke told the newspaper, a New Bedford location would have only a marginal impact on its successful Fall River restaurant off Davol Street. A spokesman for Dickinson Development says he hasn’t talked with any of the Remy folks about Riverside Landing, but it is known that the Demoulas family, developers of Market Basket, have spoken with several upscale restaurants about locating at the site. A Taco Bell is already being constructed at the Riverside Landing site, and four other retail stores are planned, with groundbreaking happening around March 1st.
