Bangor’s Momma Baldacci’s resurrected

Dec 03, 2018 316

Momma Baldacci's has been resurrected, a decade after the bricks-and-mortar Bangor restaurant closed, as a food truck. The Bangor Daily News reported that Paul Baldacci Jr., the fourth generation to be involved in the well-known restaurant, was in his early 20s when his father died in 2006. Baldacci Jr. wasn't ready for the operation, which closed in 2008. He moved on to various culinary opportunities, in 2017 bought the former food truck CN Schwarma, and last weekend launched Momma Baldacci's Italian Street Food. He told the newspaper he plans to offer regular service in Portland and Bangor.

In the meantime, the building that formerly housed Momma Baldacci's at 12 Alden St. in Bangor was torn down in June, alongside an adjacent building at 543 Broadway, the Bangor Daily News reported at the time. The Baldacci family opened its first restaurant in 1933 in downtown Bangor, moved to other Bangor locations, then purchased 12 Alden St., where they opened Momma Baldacci's in 1975.
