Posted: November 7, 2013 Bistro to make a splash on Water Street
Pull up a seat at the wine barrel table and chairs at a new bistro on Water Street. The Splash Wine Bistro isn't open just yet, but will be in a matter of days.
Liane and Andrew Dixon have enlisted the help of family members to help remodel the former Chedd's space. Liane Dixon said they wanted to open "something that reflects us." She said they wanted a warm atmosphere and have re-painted with neutral colors, added a fireplace, and had a custom bar built. The orange ceiling of Chedd's is one thing that will remain.
She said she's also been busy selecting menu items. There will be fresh salads with local produce, local meats and cheese, homemade soup and bread, fresh fruit, and dessert. Playing on the name Splash, the Dixons said
many of the plates and dinner specials will feature seafood and shellfish, bringing in a bit of their roots from Florida. "The plates are designed to indulge your sense of taste, not to leave you with an over-filled stomach."
Liane Dixon said they hope to open the Bistro by the middle of November and will host a grand opening. "The enjoyment of food and good company is the center of the experience."
