On May 16th, Isaac Blair transferred a two-ton (+) container from Cinquecento, an Italian restaurant in Boston’s South End to Tuscan Market, located in Salem, NH. A water main break back in April flooded Harrison Avenue, forcing Cinquecento to close down for repair. With the health of patrons a top concern and with an impending reopening, Salem’s Tuscan Market purchased a portable bar from Cinquecento. The portable bar, originally built in a ship’s container, allowed the restaurant to serve customers outside while providing ample room for social distancing per safety guidelines. Marr Crane & Rigging provided a crane and a tractor trailer to safely transfer the container. The container was offloaded by crane to an outdoor area under a large tent, which is functioning as restaurant space opening for business as of Monday, Memorial Day 2020.
In an email to Dan Marr, Phil Ruggiero, Principal of Knox Building Company, wrote:
“The Isaac Blair crew did a fantastic job moving the container for the owner of Tuscan Kitchen. You guys jumped on this right away and executed perfectly.”
