Capital Grille Moving from Newbury Street to the Hynes Convention Center
An upscale steakhouse in the Back Bay of Boston that is part of a national chain is going to be moving to a new location a few blocks away.
According to The Boston Globe, The Capital Grille plans to move from its current space at the corner of Newbury Street and Mass. Ave. to a new, larger spot at the Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center next year. The Globe mentions that the current location will remain open for business until the new one opens, which may be in the summer of 2011.
Once it opens in its new location, The Capital Grille will be the second dining spot to be located at the Hynes Convention Center, as Towne Stove and Spirits opened there in late July. Unlike the Newbury Street spot, the new location will be open for lunch as well as dinner, according to the article.
The Capital Grille first started out about 20 years ago in Providence, RI, expanding to nearly half the states in the country today. The chain is owned by Orlando-based Darden Restaurants, which also owns such chains as LongHorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden, and Red Lobster.
[July 31, 2011 update: Nearly a year after it was first announced, Grub Street Boston has mentioned that the move by The Capital Grille is still on, though it appears that no specific date has been given.]
[August 1, 2011 update: More information has just come in on the Capital Grille's move (thanks to Janine Gordon Associates for this). The restaurant plans to open at its new Boylston Street location on Wednesday, August 24, and it will be twice the size of the old spot on Newbury Street. In addition, the new Capital Grill will be serving lunch (the Newbury Street location was only open for dinner).]
The address of the current location of The Capital Grille in the Back Bay is 359 Newbury Street. The address for the upcoming location will be 900 Boylston Street.
