86 This!, the popular wrap and burrito joint in downtown Ellsworth, reopened a few weeks ago in its new, larger location at 125 Main St., moving up the street from its former location at 2 State St. The new location is the former home of a real estate agency, and gives 86 This! much more room for seating than their former location, as well as bathrooms; it also new takes credit cards. 86 This!, run by the husband and wife team of Jeff Kelly and Diane Kelly-Lokocz, offers up creative burritos, named for punk bands, that go far beyond meat, beans and rice. With the added kitchen space at the new location, the Kellys will also offer an array of soups and other seasonal specials, including two new chilis: Spitting Venom (with meat) and Forest Fire (vegetarian). Burritos and wraps range from cold wraps like the Fugazi (ham, mango salsa, avocado and greens) and the Beet Knick (beets, cucumbers, walnuts, feta, greens and yogurt dill dressing) to hot wraps like the Boss Hog (chipotle citrus pulled pork, black beans, rice, cheese, cabbage slaw and chipotle creme) and the Yam I Am (spicy roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, rice, avocado, cheese, pico de gallo and chipotle creme). Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Like them on Facebook for more information.
