Earlier this month, we reported that an upscale restaurant on the Boston waterfront was closing and that a new dining spot was planning to take over its space. Now we have learned that the restaurant group who we thought might be opening the new place is indeed involved with it.
According to an article from Eater Boston, The Grafton Group (Park, Grafton Street, Russell House Tavern, Temple Bar) is going to be opening Old Atlantic Tavern in the former City Landing space on State Street, with proof coming from the fact that the corporation listed for the eatery--Atlantic Shore Restaurant Corporation--includes Patrick Lee (who we had mentioned) as well as other partners of the restaurant group--Peter Lee, Sean Kennedy, and Gerry Sheerin. EB also says that the Old Atlantic Tavern would have a dining room, lounge/bar section, and outdoor seating during the warmer months, though little else is known about it at this point in time, including what will be on the menu and when it might open.
City Landing closed on January 10 after being in business for about 2 1/2 years.
The address for the proposed Old Atlantic Tavern is 255 State Street, Boston, MA, 02109.
