New and old in Ocean City

fagerThought you might want to hear about a few new restaurants in Ocean City in case you're headed down this weekend.

What else is new in Ocean City and the Delaware beaches?

What are you most looking forward to eating again, both the Boardwalk classics and in your favorite haunts.

Opening on Friday, JUST in time for Memorial Day weekend is Simon & Olivers Wood Fire Grille. Here's the Facebook page (a website is coming soon). Simon & Olivers is located at 11604 Coastal Hwy, which looks on Google Maps to be about flip-flop walking distance from the Carousel. The phone number is 443-664-6708.

It's an American menu, with entrees priced at $20-30. Woodfired entrees, obviously, are the house specialty, and other menu highlights include grilled flatbread pizzas, sliders, crab pretzels and carpaccio. 

The opening is being celebrated with a big party on Friday night. Open for lunch and dinner, it looks like, seven days a week.

There is apparently another wood-fired grill joint opening on 33rd St. in the former Tutti Gusti space but I haven't been able to dredge up its name.

Captain Adam Mediterranean American Restaurant and Bar on 136th is opening for its first full season (the restaurant opened on July 30 last year).

I reported on the opening of Bombora at the Beach Plaza Hotel here.
