New restaurant coming to Wonderland Marketplace

A new restaurant, Hook & Reel, to be located at 151 VFW Parkway, has requested an all liquor license from the license commission at their July 19 meeting.

The manager, Liyu Lin, has owned several restaurants in the northeast ranging from New York, New Jersey and Maryland. This will be his first restaurant in Massachusetts. He first heard about the open space at the Wonderland Marketplace a year ago and thought it was a prime location for his newest concept.

Hook & Reel will be a seafood restaurant with a low country boil and Cajun twist. Patrons are encouraged to eat with their hands but silverware is available upon request. There will be about 154 seats and requested hours are Sunday through Thursday 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday to Saturday 3 p.m. to 12 a.m.

They are looking to hire 25 to 35 employees and will be open in 12 to 15 weeks.

Commissioner Linda Guinasso said she thought the location was ideal for this type of establishment.

“I like where it is,” she said. “It’s not in a residential neighborhood.”

She also said Revere could benefit from having a seafood restaurant.

“This is the type of place I would like to go to,” she said.

She said she hopes they hire Revere residents during their hiring process.

Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky also said he is excited about the new establishment.

“Everyone is excited about a new restaurant coming to this part of Revere,” he said. “We are all talking about it on the beach. It is a good change of pace.”

The license commission granted the all liquor license.
