Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls’ Grand Opening

9 May 2022

Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls will host a Grand Opening event on May 26 to celebrate its newest location in Cary at Waverly Place. At the event, Grand Opening attendees may enjoy Mason’s authentic New England-style lobster rolls and other offerings, starting at 11 a.m. Guests who mention the phrase “I love lobster” at the counter will receive a free cup of soup, side or fountain soda with the purchase of a lobster roll. In addition to sampling Mason’s lobster rolls and other offerings at the event, attendees can also enter to win free lobster for a year. One winner will receive a “Free Lobster for a Year” voucher, entitling the holder to one free lobster roll per week for one calendar year from the date of issuance. Value estimated at $730.

Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls has been rapidly expanding since opening its flagship Annapolis, Md., location in 2014. The fast-casual franchise has made lobster-lovers out of seafood fans by opening additional locations in Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, D.C., Texas and Virginia. The new restaurant in Cary is located at 302 Colonades Way, Cary, NC 27518 on the Plaza Level of Waverly Place.

This is the second Mason’s restaurant in North Carolina, with another location in Raleigh also owned by Jon and Amy Narducci. Due to the success of the Raleigh location, there was an overwhelming amount of requests to bring lobster rolls to Cary. The Cary location is co-owned by Jon and Amy Narducci along with Ed Brawley. Ed, a Cary native, was introduced to Mason’s by the Narducci’s and instantly thought the Waverly Place area was a great place to open a Mason’s restaurant.

“After opening in Raleigh in 2019, we have had many loyal Mason’s fans asking us to expand in the Triangle area,” said Jon Narducci. “We thought Waverly Place Shopping Center in Cary would be the perfect place, and we can’t wait to bring our authentic lobster rolls to this side of town.” “Many people from the Northeast have moved to Cary over the years, and we’re glad we can offer up a taste of home to them,” added Ed Brawley. “We know lobster aficionados and novices in Cary are going to love it.”

Highlight the harvest season with this hearty fall salad. Earthy, caramelized sweet potatoes delicately balance out the mildly bitter kale in a colorful medley that is truly a meal in itself. Sweeten the deal with golden raisins, fresh plums, tangy feta, and crispy fried chickpeas. Then give it all a final toss with our lemony, homemade, tahini dressing. Autumn perfection!

Roasted Sausage & Veggies with Creamy Polenta

This easy dinner comes together quickly with the help of a simple sheet pan — perfect for a busy weeknight! Use this basic recipe as a starting point for becoming a pro at “sheet pan cooking,” then get creative.

13 October 2021

Waverly Place is excited to partner with Johnson Subaru for a new event headed to Waverly Place! Join us in The Park on Saturday, October 23 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm for Pups & Pints.

Additional details will be available on the event page here.

Second Chance Pet Adoptions is Raleigh’s oldest no-kill animal rescue organization. As a nonprofit organization, donors enable us to carry out our mission: to champion homeless cats and dogs who are healthy or treatable in the quest to find their forever homes and engage with our community to promote responsible pet ownership, ultimately reducing future generations of homeless animals. Since our inception in 1987, we have given second chances to over 16,000 animals, all of whom have been spayed/neutered, microchipped (once available), and vaccinated before adoption. In addition to our rescue and adoption efforts, our work includes spaying and neutering hundreds of additional animals in the community each year to proactively prevent more puppies and kittens from being born into homelessness.

Johnson Subaru of Cary is proud to partner with Second Chance for this year’s Subaru Loves Pets initiative. Second Chance works tirelessly to provide loving homes for dogs and cats in our community who truly deserve a second (or third or fourth) chance and we are excited to promote their wonderful work. We also want to thank our longtime friends at Waverly Place for hosting Pups and Pints!
