BEDFORD — The owner of popular New Hampshire restaurants like T-Bones and the Copper Door promises to bring a “new restaurant concept” next year to the former location of Shorty’s Mexican Restaurant along Route 101 in Bedford.
Tom Boucher of Great NH Restaurants, owner and CEO of T-Bones, CJ’s, Cactus Jack’s and the Copper Door announced his plans for the site Monday night.
Boucher, a longtime Bedford resident, said he is confident his team at Great NH Restaurants knows what type of restaurant will thrive at the location — though he isn’t ready to share all the details just yet.
“We’ve always loved the location and have been developing several different concepts for some time now. This location will be perfect for one of the concepts,” said Boucher in statement. “It won’t conflict with our other popular concepts, Copper Door, T-Bones, or CJ’s.”
The new restaurant will be a “completely new concept”, according to Boucher, designed to be a “gathering place for the community,” featuring a “family friendly” menu.
The former Shorty’s location will undergo extensive renovations, with plans to open in the summer of 2019, said Boucher.
The Bedford Shorty’s closed its doors Jan. 1. The restaurant’s Manchester and Nashua locations remain open for business.
