What Is Going On At The California Grille Site In Derry?

Like most of us who are excited about food, we always look forward to a new dining establishment opening in a vacant site of a previous restaurant. Yes, there is disappointment for what was lost whatever the reason. Despite our wishful thinking, this is not always the case.

That left us wondering about the old California Grille site in Derry. Located at 41 Crystal Avenue right next to T-Bones and sitting there empty for a long time. What is going on? Would this be a new restaurant?

Months ago we had driven by and the early beginnings of construction could be seen. The usual green trash bin outside filled with the remains of the inside that was being torn apart and gutted. Days and weeks passed and there was still no indication of future plans.

More recently we noticed that the outside had been painted white and green and NH Reviews was getting optimistic. Then, our hearts sank after finally finding out that this is going to be a laundromat. Sorry all, this is not what we had in mind.
