Jason Loring, co-owner of Slab and Nosh along with Mike Fraser from Bramhall and Nat Towl are launch The Point, a new clam shack on Thompson’s Point, according to a report from the Press Herald.
The restaurant, which will be called The Point, will serve all the fried foods traditionally found at clam shacks, including fried clams, fried oysters and fried scallops, as well as steamers and lobster dinners. Loring said he would serve Rhode Island calamari when it is in season, and three or four versions of lobster rolls, including a tempura-fried lobster roll served with a corn chowder.
Loring & Co plan to open this July with all outdoor seating and kitchen facilities in 2 shipping containers.
Cellardoor Winery has plans to open a tasting room on Thompson’s Point in 2016. See the PFM Under Construction page for a full list of local food businesses in development.
