Central 10Frank Vasello, the owner of the imaginative, inviting, and immensely popular Relish bakery and sandwich shop in the far West End, shares this home with his husband, Nathan Butera, a broker with Atlantic Bay Sotheby’s International Realty, and Carlo, who is a French bulldog by profession. Vasello and Butera are also the co-creators of Offseason, a 14-episode video miniseries set in Provincetown in mid-winter. The property at 10 Central Street has been owned since 1996 by Steven R. Page. He and James Anderson purchased it from the Mendes family a year after the death of Beatrice M. (Vise) Mendes (1903-1995). She was the widow of John G. Mendes (1902-1955), a carpenter who’d been in the crew responsible for erecting bleachers on the Monument Field athletic grounds in the space of a single weekend in January 1949. Anderson and Page transferred title in 2016 to Page alone.

One thought on “10 Central Street

  1. Very accurate description. Bea was my great aunt. When my paternal grandmother — Mary (Vise) Gracie, the wife of Capt. Emanuel F. Gracie, U.S.C.G., of S-4 fame — was unable to live alone, at 10 Central, she moved into the apartment created for her at 12 Central.
