Owners of Trail’s End Cafe in Concord to Take Over AKA Bistro, Whistle Stop Cafe Spaces in Lincoln
The people behind a comfort food spot in the western suburbs of Boston are going to be opening two restaurants in a neighboring town that currently has very few options for dining.
According to an article in The Lincoln Squirrel, Jim and Carol White and their daughter Elizabeth Akehurst-Moore of the Trail's End Cafe in Concord have signed leases for the spaces in the Lincoln Station complex where AKA Bistro and the Whistle Stop Cafe had been, with the former becoming a high-end comfort food place called Lincoln Kitchen and the latter becoming a second location of the Trail's End Cafe. If all goes as planned, the new location of Trail's End Cafe could open by the end of this month and Lincoln Kitchen may open later this fall.
For awhile, it looked like a new restaurant called Blazes might go into the AKA Bistro space, but plans for that apparently fell through and the owner of that proposed spot may be looking elsewhere now, according to the article.
The address for both upcoming restaurants is 145 Lincoln Road, Lincoln, MA, 01773.
