Three new eateries will open in the City of Watertown this month. One is an elaborate remake of an old favorite, Colemans Corners, just off Coffeen Street. It is widely thought owner Leo Coleman will open the doors as early as Monday.
The most elaborate is the multi million dollar investment in the Tilted Kilt, a franchise operation owned by a Lyons Falls couple. It is located on the site of the former Benny's Steak House on Arsenal Street.
Across the street, a new Japanese restaurant is opening in about a week.
While many continue to fuss over whether or not an Olive Garden is coming, these three restaurants represent major investments by their owners and exhibit a confidence in the local economy.
Earlier this year another restaurant opened on Newell Street, called Maggies on the River.
This is a competitive business, but its good to see folks willing to take a chance on Watertown....I wish them all well and am sure they will be successful.
