Under Construction: King’s Head & Casa Fiesta

Another pair of new restaurants have submitted liquor license applications to the City Council:

  • Casa Fiesta is “Mexican Bar and Grill” under construction at 865 Forest Ave (formerly Venue Music Bar, The Loft and many others). The application indicates that Casa Fiesta is “modeled like a current successfully operating business in Bideford Crossing“. They hope to open in October. A draft menu (pages 49-50) was provided as part of the materials supplied to the City Council.
  • King’s Head is under construction on Merrill’s Wharf in the Pierce Atwood building. The application states that King’s Head aims to provide a “high quality dining experience” which features “fresh ingredients highlighting local/regional/sustainable cuisine”. The interior design will draw on “maritime and historical themes” using “vintage and or antique” fixtures. They also hope to open in October. The draft menu (pages 27) was provided as part of the materials supplied to the City Council.

    I think King’s Head could be a great spot but again a place trying to break in with some really high entree prices. I just don’t know.

    Does the restaurant face the In’Finiti side of Commercial or the other end?

    Nick, The floor plans supplied to the Planning Board show it at the end of the building closest to Commercial right behind Browne Trading. I’m not sure how visible it is from Commercial. Certainly could be a regular spot for the Pierce Atwood crew.

    Damn, I was hoping for a low quality dining experience.

    With one of the guys being from Waterbury Vermont, how about he gets an exclusive distribution deal with The Alchemist brewing out of Waterbury and finally a supply of Heady Topper beer outside of Vermont. Number one ranked beer in the states. Hell I’ll go buy 30 dollar burgers if he does that.
