SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — When Salem Lowe closed down last August, many North Shore residents mourned the loss of a summertime staple: the chop suey sandwich. Now, the iconic Salem eatery and its most famous offering are making a comeback, thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of one local couple.

"The chop suey sandwich has been around, I believe, since the 1800s," said Kathleen Rodgers, the co-owner of Spitfire Tacos in Marblehead and Salem with her partner Ryan Harriman. The couple is rebooting Salem Lowe at Salem Willows.

"We're taking over a legacy, so it's big shoes to fill," Rodgers said. "We're 100% committed to bringing this vision to life...and we want to really do it justice," Harriman said. The menu will also feature revived Lowe classics like lo mein and pepper steak.

Construction is going on right now, and the restaurant hopes to be up and running by May — just in time for the summer rush.
