During the early days of the New Deal, Johnny “Mott” Viera opened the New Deal Tavern here. Joseph Manta then opened Joe’s Store — “A General Store brought up to the modern minute.” No. 333 was the home of Angie’s Pizza, one of many businesses of John “Jingles” Yingling. Café Edwige has been around since 1974, a very long time by contemporary Provincetown standards. Named for Yingling’s mother, who came from Alsace-Lorraine, it began as a jazz club, according to the artist and musician R. G. Knudsen, who was once a part owner. The current owner is Nancyann Meads. She was joined in 2014 by Steven Frappoli as chef. No. 333 also housed Dodie’s restaurant in a space now occupied by Wild Rice, a women’s clothing and apparel store.
