Cornish Pasty Co. May Open in Boston's Seaport District

It looks like a British-style restaurant that opened a location in Boston's Back Bay a couple of months ago may be opening a second spot near the water.

According to a Twitter post from Boston Herald writer @DGoodison, Cornish Pasty Co. is seeking a beer and wine license to operate on Northern Avenue by Fan Pier in the city's Seaport District. If approved, the new location of the Arizona-based dining spot would likely offer meat and veggie pasties along with soups, salads, and sides such as mushy peas and curried potatoes.

Cornish Pasty Co. opened in the former Boston Indian Kitchen space on Mass. Ave. in the middle of October.

The address for this proposed eatery in the Seaport District is: Cornish Pasty Co., 53 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA, 02210. The website for all locations can be found at http://www.cornishpastyco.com/

Digumm's in Arlington Heights Seized Again for Failure to Pay Taxes

An ice cream shop that replaced the last location of an iconic chain of ice cream parlors has been shut down for money owed once again.

According to an article in The Arlington Advocate, Digumm's in Arlington Heights is closed with a seized sign out front, with the Your Arlington site saying that the Department of Revenue shut it down because the owners owe $38,417 in taxes, and the business is now in the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, based on a sign shown in the Advocate article. This is the third time that the Mass. Ave. ice cream shop has closed since it replaced Brigham's, including the store being seized last year for money owed in rent, real estate taxes, and water charges.

It is not known if/when Digumm's will open again; as of this afternoon, it remains locked up, according to posters in The Arlington List Facebook group page.

The address for Digumm's is 1328 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476.

SUV Crashes Into Craft Beer Cellar in Weymouth Landing

A location of a group of specialty beer stores is closed for the time being after a scary accident earlier today.

According to a Facebook post from the shop, an SUV reportedly went out of control and smashed into Craft Beer Cellar in Weymouth Landing, causing extensive damage to the front windows and window frames and destroying some of its beer. The note says that the store hopes to have everything repaired over the next few days and could be opening early next week if all goes well.

No one was injured in the accident, which WCVB indicates may have been the result of a stuck accelerator, causing the Ford Explorer to go through at least three intersections before hitting the store. (WCVB says the crash is under investigation.)

The address for the Weymouth Landing location of Craft Beer Cellar is 28 Commercial Street, Braintree, MA, 02184

Tony C's Replaces Jerry Remy's in Boston's Seaport District

Earlier this year, we reported that a restaurant and sports bar named after a well-known sports figure was planning to open in Boston's Seaport District, and now we have learned that it has arrived--and it replaces another dining and drinking spot named after another well-known sports figure.

According the locations page within its website, Tony C's is now open in the space where Jerry Remy's has been, and it appears that the ownership remains the same (the Cronin Group--which owned this location of Jerry Remy's--is behind other locations of Tony C's in the Boston area). Back in April, it was mentioned that Tony C's had taken over the space in the Fenway where another Jerry Remy's had been, and it was also learned that Tony C's had been planning to expand to the Seaport District as well, though we were unable to confirm at the time that it would be moving into the Jerry Remy's location.

Currently, locations of Tony C's can be found in the Fenway, Somerville, and Burlington, while remaining locations of Jerry Remy's are at Logan Airport and an independently-owned outlet in Fall River.

The address for the new Tony C's in the Seaport District is 250 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA, 02210. The website for all locations of Tony C's can be found at https://www.tonycssportsbar.com/

Hooters in Dedham Gets Liquor License After Town Is Forced into a Revote

It looks like a chain of dining spots that some have labeled "breastaurants" has won the battle to open a new location in a Boston suburb.

According to an article in the Dedham Patch, town selectmen were basically forced into a revote on the transfer of a liquor license to Hooters, as the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission went against the board's earlier vote to deny the restaurant a license based in part on a neighborhood petition along with issues mentioned earlier here that included what the selectmen considered inequitable hiring practices. Based on the ABCC's overturning of the town's earlier vote, selectmen voted this time to support the transfer, noting that even though they could have appealed the ABCC's decision, they didn't think that they would win.

Hooters is planning to open in the Providence Highway space on where Jasper White's Summer Shack had once been.
