Have you ever wondered how some restaurants, particularly chain restaurants, cook and serve meals so quickly? Here's a hint: they're frequently not cooking your food in the way you might think. They're probably using pre-cooked meats in their dishes, allowing those restaurants to quickly heat your food, serve it to you, and turn your table over to the next customer. There are even downloadable guides on how restaurants can improve their "efficiency" through the use of pre-cooked meats.

Located in the iconic brick building at 164 Main Street in Newmarket that has served as the home for a variety of businesses throughout the years, it's been the home of The Riverworks for the past 31 years. Its cozy ambience and rustic charm has earned it the moniker of "Newmarket's Living Room".
