Weston recreates historic restaurant for bicentennial

Lewis

As part of its celebration of its bicentennial, the city of Weston is recreating a piece of its past.

The city’s Fairs and Festivals Committee has partnered with the Thyme Bistro to recreate the Bailey House restaurant.

The restaurant was a downtown fixture in the 1800s, and the city is offering seats at a series of dinners catered by the bistro in a Main Street storefront.

Bistro chef Geoff Kraus said the place helps to take people back to Weston’s past.

“The dining room that they have set up over there is kind of like from that period, so they had a picture of that, so they’re trying to recreate the look of that.  It feels very old-timey when you’re in there having dinner.  So it’s interesting and I’m glad to be a part of that,” Kraus said.

There are about 40 seats available for each dinner, with the next one coming up on Wednesday, October 3.  Tickets can be purchased at the Weston Municipal Building.
