5 Corners Kitchen in Marblehead Plans to Reopen in Spring, Is Asking for Help
A Marblehead restaurant that was heavily damaged in a fire this summer is planning to reopen in a few months, but is also asking for help from diners.
According to The Marblehead Reporter and Wicked Local, 5 Corners Kitchen on School Street is looking to open in the spring of 2012, but needs to raise money in order to cover the amount beyond what insurance covered, which apparently wasn't enough for them to reopen. The restaurant is offering gift certificates, with gifts given to customers in return, and for those who purchase gift certificates between $500 and $1,000, they will receive 10% back as well as a 5 Corners Kitchen hat and a pass to the grand re-opening, which will only be open to people who buy gift certificates in this price range.
5 Corners Kitchen first opened in May of 2010, bringing to this North Shore community a place to get moderately-priced New American dishes made using locally-sourced foods. The restaurant was hit by a two-alarm fire in July, forcing the place to close for repairs and reconstruction.
[March 19, 2012 update: The Marblehead Reporter states that not only will 5 Corners Kitchen be reopening, but it will also be expanding, taking over the space next door where an ice cream shop used to be. The article mentions that the restaurant should be opening sometime in June.]
[August 2, 2012 update: According to a poster on the Chowhound site, Five Corners Kitchen in Marblehead is now open in their expanded space.]
The address for this restaurant in Marblehead is: 5 Corners Kitchen, 2 School Street, Marblehead, MA, 01945. Their website can be found at http://www.5cornerskitchen.com/
