Hamburger Mary’s Bar and Grille (Facebook | Website) is expanding their Church Street restaurant into the space left vacant by Church Street Tavern’s recent departure.

According to, the new concept will be called Mary’s Sidebar Cafe, and will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner service along with takeout options.

The owners previously had plans to open a second location of the GLBT-friendly burger chain at Mills Market in the former Segafredo’s building. Their plans were thwarted, however, by Whole Foods Fresh Market, who complained that they would take up too much parking.
