The new Market Square Sweet Basil Kitchen and Bar is latest addition to revitalizing city neighborhood WOONSOCKET – A new res- taurant from a Massachusetts-based investor-and-chef team in the former Vintage building is the latest addition to a neighborhood that has seen a resurgence of development in recent years. Sweet Basil Kitchen and Bar will offer Italian fare along with Greek specialties, with a projected opening date in November, according to chef and restaurateur Angelo Petropulos. The restaurant will also feature a bar, function area and weekend brunch in an atmosphere Petropulos describes as fine dining with a casual dining price point. "I know Italian-American cuisine is something that you can find in a lot of restaurants, but I'm going to do it with my style, with my own recipes," By LAUREN CLEM Valley Breeze Staff Writer See MARKET SQUARE, Page 10 NORTH SMITHFIELD – On a recent weekday morning, a small group of volunteers gathered among the shady trees and damp mulch of a historic cemetery on Smithfield Road. Here, among the broken headstones and iron fences separat- ing one family plot from the next, the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet, broken only by the sound of a passing car or a distant weed whacker as a groundskeeper made his way through the adjacent Union Cemetery. The grounds of the his- torical section are clean and well kept except for patches of grass and occasional stumps between the cem- etery's many dirt paths.
