“Who would have ever thought a burger joint in NB would be a destination restaurant for vegans and vegetarians, certainly not me.
After much consideration, I have decided to close my restaurant at 288 Union street to concentrate my efforts on opening a small shop specializing in vegan comfort food, a much-needed option in Massachusetts. My business plan is to offer a ‘take and bake’ shop to make vegan options more affordable and offering cooking classes.
We are so proud to be the first restaurant in the area to offer so many vegan/vegetarian menu items that were in cities like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston. We were the first restaurant in the area to offer a vegan brunch, avocado toast, avocado fries, Impossible burgers, house-made fried vegan chicken, house-made vegan pepperoni, meatballs & sausage, house-made vegan mac and cheese and vegan alfredo, dairy-free cheese options as well as house-made vegan sauces and more.
Our last day of full restaurant service will be November 23rd, however, we will be offering many of our vegan options for sale for you to take home and bake. We will post the menu and pick up days within the next week.” – Mary’s Steamed Cheeseburgers.
