After more than a year sitting empty, the former Yesterday’s property will become the new home for Stoneacre Pantry. Their last day open at 515 Thames Street will be January 1, 2017, it is unknown when they plan to open in their much bigger location in Washington Square.

UPDATE (1/5/16): STONEACRE TO OPEN BRASSERIE-STYLE RESTAURANT IN NEWPORT’S WASHINGTON SQUARE, FORMERLY YESTERDAY’S, SPRING/SUMMER 2017. Stoneacre’s Thames Street Location to Re-open as Basque-style Restaurant, La Vasca, January 6

Stoneacre Pantry will open at the Yesterday’s location with the full liquor license formerly held by Yesterday’s, which is now owned by their new landlord. Stoneacre has swapped the full liquor license that they have used at 515 Thames Street with The Wharf Pub in exchange for that restaurants beer and wine license. That beer and wine license will be used for Stoneacre’s new concept at 515 Thames Street.

Yesterday’s closed after 42 years in business back on September 26, 2015. The Stoneacre crew will work with a somewhat clean slate in the Washington Square location, as all of Yesterday’s belongings were auctioned off in October of 2015.

Stoneacre opened at 515 Thames Street in August 2013 and has focused on sustainability and a positive relationship with our local environment. Their menu has been small, seasonal, and supported nearby farms and fishermen with fish from nearby waters and meats from local farms that raise their animals humanely.
