Are you ready for some lakeside dining Near Northians?
Things have been rocking at the site of the much anticipated Smuggler’s at North Shore eatery, a venue soon to take their place in the dining landscape of our region and committed to providing a unique dining experience.
The groundbreaking in late September was welcome news to lake dwellers who have sorely missed the waterfront restaurant that has seen several incarnations at the site. Four and a half years have gone by since the fire that resulted in the closing of what was then called Smuggler’s Cove. After a lengthy process to gain approval, work began in earnest and the project has moved along steadily.
We checked in with co-owner Raeanne Huskey for an update.
“We are thrilled to see the progress at the future site of Smugglers at North Shore. CopperRock Construction is working hard at making our dreams a reality. We now have the framing completed and our contractors are beginning to work on the exterior and interior work.
“Our teams are working diligently on making the restaurant an absolute showstopper. The interior design is going to be beautiful. We are excited to soon announce some of our future management team. Follow us on facebook for all the latest and greatest!
“We can't wait to welcome guests to enjoy lakeside dining right here in Newaygo!”
Coincidentally, we can’t wait either so we asked about a possible opening date and Ms. Huskey replied, “We are optimistically hoping for July.”
Ah yes, Midsummer. A truly righteous time in our bipeninsular paradise and with the addition of a new establishment featuring top notch culinary creations?
Life in the Near North looks to get a bit better.
