February opening targeted for tavern

MIDDLEBURY — Restaurateur and chef Michel Mahe said he’s shooting for a February 2014 opening for his latest gastronomic enterprise that will be located in the former Jackson’s on the River space at 7 Bakery Lane in Middlebury.
Mahe explained that permitting and some changes in renovation plans have delayed what he had originally hoped would be a spring-summer 2013 opening for the as-yet-unnamed restaurant. Interior renovations have been ongoing for the past four months.
“The feel of the place will be completely different,” he promised of the spot, which borders the Otter Creek in downtown Middlebury.
Mahe told the Independent about a year ago that his business plan calls for a tavern-style establishment with seating for 70-80 patrons. He spoke of a menu that will feature fixed-price entrees, as well as pub fare — including gourmet burgers.
This will be Mahe’s fifth restaurant. He already owns the very successful Black Sheep Bistro and Park Squeeze in Vergennes, the Bobcat Café in Bristol and the Bearded Frog in Shelburne.
