Aerosmith drumming legend Joey Kramer came to Maine last spring to stump for his own 3-year-old brand of certified organic coffee. Now he’s decided to open a restaurant here, near Sunday River.

He announced Wednesday that he’ll open the Rockin’ & Roastin’ Café & Restaurant – At the Mountain in Newry, with business executive Les Otten, former vice chairman of the Boston Red Sox. Otten has been credited with helping save Fenway Park and was a one-time owner of Sunday River and several other ski resorts.

The restaurant is scheduled to open in December, according to a press release, in the space that now houses Phoenix House & Well restaurant. It’ll be part coffeehouse, part restaurant and part bar, with “unparalleled views of Sunday River Mountain.” The restaurant will be open year-round and will feature live music. The interior will “undergo a total revamp fit for rock royalty,” the release says. Rock memorabilia will be on display, including Kramer’s glow-in-the-dark drum kit from the recent Aerosmith “Global Warming Tour.”

The coffeehouse menu will feature baked goods – made in-house – and sandwiches, with the names of some menu items punning on Aerosmith hits (“Janie’s Got a Bun” and “Livin’ on a Wedge”). The dining room will serve family-friendly food, including steaks and seafood.
