The One Ten Grill welcomed the public to take a look inside its newly renovated interior, now almost unrecognizable from the days of its previous tenant, Café Madrid.
Taxes unpaid by Café Madrid on their liquor license, which was transferred to the One Ten Grill, provided some early difficulties during the restaurant’s first few months of existence, but that, much like the old layout, has been resolved.
“The town has been very helpful,” said One Ten Grill owner John Gailey. “We struggled at times, but our regular customers remained steady.’
While there is now a new entranceway and different flow for the bar and television viewing room on the side of the restaurant, Gailey said that the biggest change was the bathrooms, which were also moved, requiring new plumbing.
Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce Vice President Karon Bergeron had been to the restaurant several times in the past, but was taken aback when she stopped in for lunch during the restaurant’s open house on Thursday.
“I am blown away, it looks like it’s doubled in size even though it hasn’t,” said Bergeron. “Everything is top notch, just like the food.”
Located on Chelmsford Street just off 495, more information on the 110 Grill is available on their website.
