WNC Too, Sneak Peak
I just got a behind the scenes tour of Willamette Noodle Company's second kitchen and dining room opening soon in downtown at the location formerly occupied by The Arbor Cafe. It's actually going to be their main kitchen. Believe it or not, that spot on High St. has a much larger kitchen then their original store and there is an additional area set aside for doing prep work for both stores. The new dining room seats fifty people but will still have the quaint feeling of a small mom and pop shop. In fact, mom and pop is a good way to describe the owners, Janet and Robert Henry, who have been raising three children in Salem. Like their original store, WNC Too will be family friendly, offering crayons to little customers and paper table cloths to doodle. The owners are also enthusiastic about all the new restaurants opening downtown, saying that the variety of new restaurants will help make downtown more of a destination for Salem residents. They are making plans to coordinate with Young's Teriyaki next door and have live music out front during the summer. If you're excited as I am, there is a possibility that they will open Monday. Stay tuned.
