FALMOUTH — The local restaurant landscape is changing at Falmouth Sea Grille and the former Johnny’s Bistro & Bar.
On the Foreside, the Sea Grille has been demolished to make way for a new building.
“The old building was very tired,” said Handy Boat owner Jay Hallett.
The new building will go up in the same footprint as the old one.
“It’s just going to be changed for the better,” Hallett said.
Once the new building is completed, the first floor will be used for seasonal dining, while the second floor will be open year-round.
On Route 1, Hug’s Italian Cuisine has replaced the former Johnny’s Bistro. The restaurant is owned by Beth McKenney, who also operates a restaurant in Carabassett Valley near Sugarloaf USA.
The family-friendly restaurant serves traditional Italian cuisine.

An excavator tears apart the remains of the Falmouth Sea Grille at Handy Boat on Tuesday, Nov. 2. The Foreside restaurant will be rebuilt in the same footprint with plans to reopen next year.
