Mad Martha’s Beach Cafe, a local island landmark, changes hands again. The cafe, formerly owned by Brad DeLibero, recently sold the business to Kendall Bowie & Kyree Gerson. The former GMs from two Newburyport restaurants have partnered to take over the Cafe and in the process will change the name to “Mad Martha’s Island Cafe.”
Since taking ownership, the two have already begun transforming the place. Old customers will notice the improved landscaping, interior paint changes, and the most significantly — the new sign above the entrance.
While the restaurant undergoes some cosmetic transformation, the jury’s still out on whether the new updates will attract new clientele while retaining the loyalty of the local following. Maybe it’s gone too upscale? Too early to tell. Stop in and check it out and let us know what you think.
