Mango’s Dockside Bistro made it official Tuesday evening this week by staging a chamber-sponsored ribbon-cutting ceremony.
A few hundred people jammed the restaurant and outside area to enjoy the festivities, which included kids’ outside games, plenty of food to snack on, and the vibes of entertainer Frank Carroll.
The bistro is the culmination of what began as a take-out-and-catering business, Chefs’ Express, which opened seven years ago.
Mango’s is approaching its first year at The Esplanade dockside location.
