True North Kitchen + Bar opened quietly on September 1, 2017 at 159 Bridge Street in Weymouth, MA. The physical space of True North was previously occupied by Kelly's Landing for 38 years. The space has been gutted and renovated and now seats 90 people with a 22 seat bar. Inside, the décor matches the modern American food with industrial accents such as iron-welded soffits to store liquor and Edison bulb light fixtures. Seating options include high top bar tables, banquette seating, as well as booths.
True North Kitchen + Bar is owned and operated by Janet and Joe Campbell. They were partners in the restaurants that made up the Cohasset Harbor Resort (Atlantica, The Olde Salt House, and Brisa Tapas, and Wine Bar) before they sold their interests in 2016. Prior to joining the Cohasset Harbor Resort team as Managing Partner, Joe was the former Vice President of Operations of Legal Seafoods. Janet owned and operated a dance studio for 16 years before joining Joe in the business. As previously mentioned, their son Ben, opened the restaurant and developed the concept before heading to Europe and Asia to continue his culinary education. Their daughter Alyssa helps out with the bookkeeping, bar management, and marketing, when she's not caring for their grand daughter Emilia Joy DeGeorge, the next generation of restauranteurs.
