|Ceia is getting ready to open at 38 State Street in Newburyport.|
Ceia (pronounced SAY-yah), currently open at 25 State Street in Downtown Newburyport, will be open for New Year’s Eve then close January 1 after New Year's Day brunch (at 3 PM), only to open seven days later at 38 State Street. As we previously reported here, the new Ceia will occupy three levels, thus expanding from a roughly 1,200-square-foot restaurant to 3,300 square feet. The first floor will mimic the current location’s decor, whose exposed brick, antique mirrors, lamp sconces, wooden booths and copper tables create a cozy intimate setting. An open kitchen and a chef’s table will be features on the second floor and a lounge area will occupy the third-floor loft space.
Brine, an ode to raw bar specialties and prime meats, is slated to open in the original 25 State Street locale in a few weeks.
