5 Things to Know About Arlington's Newest 'Gourmet-Food Place'
Arlington Patch - almost 5 years
1.) NEW KID ON THE BLOCK: The Savory Plate opened its doors two-and-a-half months ago at 1346 Massachusetts Ave. in Arlington Heights, the former home of V3 Multisport. Converting the sporting-goods store’s stockroom into a kitchen wasn’t easy, according to Savory Plate’s president, Ken McCord, but so far, so good. “We’ve gotten a great reception from the community,” he said recently. “We’re really happy here.”
2.) THE BASICS: The Savory Plate primarily sells carry-out or prepared foods, with international flavors, cooked from scratch, although it does have seating for eating in (both a lunch and dinner menu), frozen foods and self-catering options as well. “Basically what we sell is gourmet comfort food,” McCord said. The store is open seven days a week – 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday.
3.) IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR: McCord, a retired picture-frame wholesaler, and his wife Jennifer, who live in New Castle, N.H., run the business side of things
