The Farragut House in South Boston to Be Taken Over by The Biltmore in Newton
A neighborhood Irish pub and eatery in South Boston has been purchased by an owner of a restaurant and tavern in Newton, and it looks like the new place will be a lot like the Newton spot.
According to The Boston Herald, The Farragut House on P Street in the City Point section of Southie was bought by one of the owners of The Biltmore Bar and Grille on Chestnut Street in Newton Upper Falls. The article states that the new spot will get a name change and a menu that looks more like that of The Biltmore, which is a slightly more upscale restaurant than The Farragut House. The co-owner of the as-of-yet-unnamed restaurant mentions that while its menu may be more higher-level, he does want the place to remain a neighborhood-type spot.
[December 29 update: An email from Goldstein Pierce has indicated that the Farragut House is now closed.]
Both The Farragut House and The Biltmore have been reviewed on the Boston's Hidden Restaurant's blog (our sister site). Links to the reviews can be found below.
