Mortensen’s Ice Cream & Restaurant on the Berlin Turnpike closed New Years Eve day after 37 years and will be converted to a Moe’s Southwest Grill restaurant. Getting back to their roots, the Mortensens will run an ice cream only store in the back. An open house was held New Year’s Day so loyal customers and former employees could say goodbye.
