Harding Lee Smith is adding two more establishments two his series of Room restaurants:
- Smith is in the early stages of developing The Front Room – Falmouth. He hopes to open a restaurant a little bit larger than it’s namesake on Munjoy Hill with a function room on the 2nd floor. He hasn’t leased a space yet but if all goes according to plan he’s aiming to open in the fall.
- Smith is also working on a restaurant called The Mountain Room at Sunday River in the Peak Lodge at the top of Chondola lift. The Mountain Room will have an outdoor deck, stone fireplace, open kitchen/raw bar, 20-seat bar and communal-style dining room. It’s a seasonal restaurant and plans are for it to open in time for the 2016-17 ski season.
Smith shared that it has “always been my plan to have 5-6 places” and been on the lookout for locations that are a fit for the types of restaurants he’d like to open. His first restaurant, The Front Room, opened in December 2005. The Grill Room and The Corner Room opened in quick succession in 2008 and 2009. Finally Boone’s Fish House & Oyster Room opened in 2013.
