Norfolk County’s most modern restaurant will be open for public inspection next Sunday when Timothy’s Restaurant will hold an open house all day at its brand new quarters at 34 Day street, Norwood.
The restaurant will be the new home of a fast growing business operated for the past seven years as Mac’s Lunch on Day street. The business has expanded to such an extent that new quarters have been a necessity for some time, and Donald MacDonald provided the answer when he decided to put up a new building at the corner of Day and Central streets to house his Color Center. Timothy’s Restaurant will occupy the westerly section of this new business block.
Visitors on Sunday will be treated to free coffee and muffins while inspecting the premises and the most ultra-modern facilities known to the food preparation trade. Some of the foods which Timothy’s Restaurant will feature will be on display.
The owners and operators of Timothy’s Restaurant are no strangers to those who know and appreciate good food. Timothy Connolly and his wife Marlynne have been active in the restaurant business for many years and are also known to thousands in the area for their catering service, specializing in clam and chicken bakes in season. The Connolly’s have put on as many as 34 bakes in a season serving over 3500 satisfied individuals. More than 800 have been accommodated at one event. This service will be continued as an adjunct to the restaurant business.
Mrs. Connolly, in addition to her affiliation with the Day street restaurant business, is well known in Norwood as the industrious manager of the cafeteria at the Callahan School while school is in session
Timothy’s Restaurant plans to be open for business next Monday. Patrons will readily notice that it is the most up-to-date establishment of its kind to be found anywhere. The restaurant will boast all stainless steel equip, ment in its ultra-modern kitchen. Huge walk-in freezers will make it possible to keep on hand am. pic quantities of choice meats, fish and other foods which the smaller restaurant would find it impossible to handle. Found on the menu will be a full array of lobsters, steaks and chops, even oysters on the half shell, but Timothy’s will feature a diversified menu for the workingman’s lunch.
The restaurant will be able to seat as many as 88 persons at any one time. There will be counter as well as cafeteria service.
Timothy’s Restaurant will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. One of the unusual services of the new restaurant will be the preparation of full-course dinners to take out, thus relieving busy housewives of the chore of preparing a meal when pressed for time, or offering the solution to the problem of accommodating extra guests who might drop In unexpectedly. While this new service is expected to require a little time to get into operation, It is planned eventually to arrange for persons to call in their order* for dinners-to-go.
