Taste grows for al fresco dining

(Continued)

Bita Naghibi said the group usually heads elsewhere to celebrate the end of the work week, but with temperatures in the 70s and clear skies above, their plans quickly changed. They just couldn’t spend the evening indoors, she said.

“It’s really exciting to enjoy the outside in Andover and stay in town instead of going somewhere else,” fellow employee Valerie Berlinghieri said.

Jamie Cammarata, a Realtor with Prudential Howe and Doherty on Bartlet Street, said the Main Street project a few years ago “put a lot of good money in to bring old-school Andover into new-school traditions.”

“It’s great that (the community) is supporting the businesses in this market,” Cammarata said.

Count Tom Walsh among the fans of outdoor dining. He called Brasserie 28’s expansion “a great use for the space.”

“Outdoor dining is pleasant and something that my family enjoys, and we’re happy to have something that is driving distance, walking distance, for some families,” he said.
