Great Escape, an Italian-influenced steakhouse, will open in a former Salem jail, reports the Salem News. The site, originally slated to be a restaurant from the Aquitaine Group, seats 70 inside and features a 50 seat patio. Like Boston’s Clink, Alibi, and Scampo, all of which are located inside a former jail, Great Escape will take thematic inspiration from its building: think granite floors and cell doors to block off areas. Because nothing says “a fun night out” like pretending you’re in jail!
