Boston Restaurant Talk gets a (steak) tip that Tuckaway Tavern and Butchery in bucolic Raymond, NH is a-fixin' to open a second outlet in the now cow-less but still giant-cactused old Hilltop property in Saugus, which closed in 2013.
The restaurant itself served up a lagniappe on its Facebook page today about the potential new space.
wow they are gonna sell meat on an empty lot?
because the building was torn down like months ago.....
(Surprised a big boxer didn't go here considering its prime real estate on Route 1)
I am familiar with Tuckaway. Its not that great. Family swears by it but I have never had a good meal there.
That said, the old hilltop location is a huge, very expensive piece of real estate. The last time I checked it had a for sale sign on it. I assumed a major development would be coming. You can fit a lot of different things on that lot, depending on zoning.
Tuckaway is nowhere in the league of the former Hilltop. I could see it as part of a larger development on that site, but not as a stand alone tenant.
It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
Please please keep the sign!
A foodie friend in NH loves (LOVES) this place. Swears by it for both restaurant and butcher shop.
Its a bump on the road between Manchester and Hampton. A not particularly noteworthy bump.
A commuter town and that's it.
I thought everything north of the border was bucolic :-).
The southern part of the state is just Northern Massachusetts now.
When you get a bit west of Nashua, it's pretty boonie.
Didn't route one Spinelli's functions buy the Hilltop land. I thought they did.
If they do this, I am going to get very fat. And it will be glorious.
