According to a public notice announcing the sale, the property is about 4,601 square feet with living quarters above the restaurant. The property is owned by Craig A. Wolf and Carla J. Wolf. The restaurant’s telephone number is disconnected and the Wolfs are unlisted in the phone book.
Mallard’s closing is a big loss to the town, New Market Mayor Winslow Burhans said.
“People shop and tour on the stomach. Without restaurants, they’re going somewhere else.
“I feel a certain amount of pride in Mallard’s because the Historic District Commission and I worked very hard on the design for expansion,” Burhans said. “And they did a bang up lunch business and Mealey’s did dinner. É Having more than one restaurant offers residents, local employees and visitors options.”
Mallard’s closure leaves only one eatery in town, Mom’s Pizza and Grill.
Also, I drove by JJ Pidickles during prime lunch hour yesterday and there wasn’t a car in sight. At the last second I noticed a For Sale sign in the front of the building but didn’t get a chance to see the realtor’s name.
In case you missed it in the comments, apparently there are For Sale signs in the window at La Dolce Vita.
