The old site of Davy's Locker/The Edge restaurant on Rodney French Boulevard has sat idle for years, but that is about to change rapidly.

If you haven't been down to the Fort Taber area recently, you'd better buckle up for what you're going to see. A very active construction zone has descended upon the South End waterfront property.

When it is all said and done, owner Steve Silverstein believes it could very well be one of the most recognizable parts of New Bedford. Silverstein explains what is coming to the site like this: "If Jimmy Buffet were to open an entertainment place in New Bedford, this is what it would look and feel like."

The site will be home to one of the largest entertainment complexes on the SouthCoast, including an outdoor stage with live music daily from 3p-10p, a brewery, distillery, winery, a 300-seat restaurant, outdoor BBQ, raw bar, clam shack, an outdoor kid zone area, fire pit, five harborside bars, moorings, and a dock for customers arriving by boat.

"We are looking to immediately hire 164 more team members to join us," says Silverstein. "We'll be interviewing on site for all positions on Saturday, April 17th from 10 am to 4 pm. We are actively hiring so we can start to get ready. Training will begin next month."

There's opportunity for people at every from chefs and managers to parking lot attendants, from high school students to career restaurant pros. People interested in applying should look for the tent outside the building. If you can not make it in person, you can send an email to

Cisco New Bedford is shooting to open by Memorial Day.

Silverstein stressed Cisco is all about fun. "What makes this whole Cisco thing work is live music and the ability to bring your dog," he laughed.
