Context

Cape Elizabeth residents and countless other locals from here and away will remember the original Rudy's of the Cape as a casual place where they could meet anyone from "lawyers to lobstermen" while getting good food and good company since the 1960s. Under new ownership since 2011, the old building was demolished to make room for a completely updated space that aims to have the same welcoming atmosphere, showcased by a beautiful new interior and exterior.

Response

The new contemporary cottage style building will include a light and airy seating area and a warm, comfortable interior, not to mention really great food and drink with a farm-to-table emphasis.
