Ralphie's Salem, NH closing?

pinehurst | May 14, 2014 09:57 AM

H and I enjoyed a good (as usual) dinner there last night. We really appreciate the old-school, red sauce menu and how accommodating it is. For example, you can get your chicken parm with eggplant, with pasta, or solo.

But to my point---we overheard a waitress at another table saying that closure was looming; the entire Cumberland Farms plaza in which Ralphie's is a tenant (there is a long-shuttered Carvel, nail salon and cell phone store in there...only the Cumbies and Ralphies remain open) is going to be razed. The server thought it was to rebuild a bigger CF; she said there are no plans for relocation, as of now.

If this is indeed so--and I don't see why she'd fabricate the story to a family we've seen dining there many times--it's very sad. They're affordable and good, and one of my fave places for homestyle stuff like broccoli rappi and tripe.
