Hospitality group takes over three Cohasset landmarks

New partners have taken control of three Cohasset landmarks: the Red Lion Inn, the Cohasset Harbor Inn, and Atlantica restaurant on Cohasset Harbor.

“Cohasset Hospitality Partners is very excited and honored for the opportunity to write a new chapter of these landmarks and to reconnect them with the community,” spokeswoman Emily Kent said in an e-mail.

Cohasset Hospitality Partners consists of Alex and Andrew Marconi of the Catered Affair in Rockland, George McGoldrick of Black Rock Country Club, and Ted Lubitz of Harbor Run Development.

The group takes over as majority and managing partners of the properties, which had been owned and run by A & S Restaurants and Gerd Ordelheide.


In its first step, in mid-November, the new group reopened the Red Lion Tavern, the restaurant and bar at the Red Lion Inn in the center of town.

Kent said that within the next few weeks, the group will open a new restaurant — named Cove — at the Cohasset Harbor Inn. Cove will focus on family dining, a Sunday brunch, and will have outdoor dining in seasonable weather, she said.

Both the Red Lion Inn and Cohasset Harbor Inn are open for room bookings and private events, she said.

Atlantica will be reopened “as a fine dining restaurant,” with renovations on the building set to begin soon, she said.

She said further development is planned over the next three years, adding, “we hope to reinforce a solid foundation for growth between these three properties in the future.”
