A new dining and drinking spot is on its way to Salem, and it looks like it will be moving into the space where a barbecue place had been.
According to a post within the jobs section of bostonchefs.com, Stella's Restaurant & Wine Bar is planning to open on Lafayette Street, with the address given indicating that it would be taking over the former Smokin' Betty's BBQ + Bar space. Very little is known about the upcoming spot other than the fact that SKF Hospitality Group is behind it, while a check on opencorporates.com shows that the company is based in Saugus.
The space where Stella's Restaurant & Wine Bar is opening has been home to a few restaurants over the past decade, including Smokin' Betty's, Red Lulu, and Strega.
The address for this upcoming dining and drinking spot in Salem is: Stella's Restaurant & Wine Bar, 94 Lafayette Street, Salem, MA, 01970.
