Following on the heels of his success in Newburyport, award-winning chef James Rogers has decided to open a second location of his Andiamo Restaurant + Bar in Chelmsford at a new lifestyle center called “Chelmsford Town Center,” which is anticipated to begin construction in September.
The Newburyport location opened just three years ago, but since then it has received a steady stream of support from critics and restaurant goers alike, collecting many accolades along the way. Most recently, the 2015 Best of The North Shore Readers’ Choice for Italian, and the 2015 Daily News Best Bets for martinis. With such success, it is no wonder Rogers has decided the time is ripe to expand.
“I am so excited to bring our signature restaurant experience and unique twist on traditional recipes to the next level in a new area.” says Rogers. “The fact that our Chelmsford site will also be built out to our specific wants and needs is also extremely exciting. My wife and I are truly looking forward to becoming part of the fabric of another community.”
He adds, “Andiamo’s first location in Newburyport has a special place in our hearts; from our dedicated first-class staff to our amazing customer base and fresh food, it has really set the tone for our brand. We can only hope to have those similar successes in our new Chelmsford location.”
Andiamo in Chelmsford will feature an open-kitchen concept with a beautiful wood-fired oven. Signature dishes will include delicacies like butternut squash ravioli in a brown butter sage cream sauce, chicken parmesan over fresh pasta in an arugula pistachio pesto, and weekly antipasti plates. Guests can expect traditional Italian dishes alongside new and exciting daily specials.
Just as in the Newburyport location, Rogers will salute the fine culinary fare of Italy, and will offer a handcrafted cocktail list and extensive wine menu featuring Italian imports. The Chelmsford location will have an atmosphere just as warm and intimate as what diners at the Newburyport location have come to expect.
