Streetwise: Downtown boutique, restaurant open for business

Shoppers now have two new businesses they can visit during their downtown trips. 


Daly's Restaurant, located at 307 Third St., opened its doors on Thursday, serving up cocktails and charcuterie boards, according to a Facebook post. The business, which is owned by Tee and Jim Daly, will start serving more food as they get their kitchen up and running in the next several weeks, the post said. 

Daly's took the prominent downtown spot over after Crostini Bar closed in late August due to financial issues. The Dalys reworked the space and plan to offer craft drinks, craft beer and small and large plates once the restaurant is fully functioning. 

Daly's is now open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closed on Sunday. 


Poppy's Boutique, located at 316 Washington St., opened its doors for the first time on Saturday, offering customers a chance to purchase ethically sourced and made clothing items. 

The boutique, which is run by Raissa Dupuis, is located in the former home of The Bauhaus painting studio and offers a selection of women's clothing, jewelry and accessories. 

Poppy's is open from 10 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The shop is closed on both Sunday and Monday.
