Reunion Tap & Table ready for opening in Whitinsville

Shawn Briggs, with Paul Apkarian, left, is anxious to open the doors of the new Reunion Tap & Table restaurant in the Whitinsville Plaza.


Shawn Briggs was literally putting the finishing touches on a shelf behind the bar of the new Reunion Tap & Table restaurant in a section of the Whitinsville Plaza on the morning of February 1st: a coat of black paint.
Taking up a spot formerly occupied by Jube’s that had been vacant for a while, Reunion Tap & Table has been months in the making, with a complete rebuild of the premises undertaken and now finished.
“We’ll be opening next week,” Mr. Briggs, one of the partners, said. “The day we get our occupancy permit, we’ll be open the next day.”
Reunion Tap & Table is well known for its signature restaurant in Grafton; this one, though slightly smaller, is cut along the same lines. It will offer lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday and dinner every day for starters. Plans are for takeout pizza too.
“We’re just waiting for a delivery from Sunshine Sign,” Mr. Briggs said. A banner has been strung across the front of the restaurant in the meantime.
Shawn Briggs, Josh Briggs, Sargon Hanna and Paul Apkarian are all principals in the operation.

The buffet features “something for everyone” including savory breakfast dishes, creative twists on traditional favorites, “our popular Omelet Station, Carving Station, Waffle Station, Millionaire Cinnamon Rolls, Lox, Crème Brulee French Toast, Braised Chicken Marsala, Parmesan Pesto Salmon, Eggs Benedict and so much more.
