Update: KO Catering and Pies Is Opening KO Pies at the Shipyard in Former Scup's Space in East Boston
[Ed note: This article was edited on June 13 to reflect a name change for the restaurant. Thanks to Eater Boston for this information.]
A rumor that we heard awhile back has come true, as a South Boston takeout spot that features Australian fare is going to opening a second place in East Boston, with this one being a full-service restaurant that takes over the space where an eclectic eatery used to be.
According to Eater Boston, KO Catering and Pies is planning to open a new dining spot--tentatively called KO Pies at the Shipyard --in the former Scup's in the Harbour space within the Boston Harbor Shipyard (the people behind Scup's closed the place last year because of health-related issues). The article mentions that the new restaurant will have a capacity of 30 inside, with room for another 40 on an outdoor patio during the warmer months, and it will feature meat pies as well as sandwiches and local seafood, along with beer and wine.
Expect the new eatery from the KO people to open sometime between mid-April and May.
[June 6 update: KO Pies at the Shipyard is one step closer to opening in East Boston, as EveryBlock Boston has posted that the upcoming spot received a business license earlier this month.]
[June 6 update, part 2: Eater Boston is reporting that KO Pies at the Shipyard is going to soft-open on Tuesday, June 19.]
[July 13 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that KO Pies at the Shipyard is now fully open.]
The address for this new restaurant is 256 Marginal Street (Building 16), East Boston, MA, 02128, in the Jeffries Point section of East Boston (near Piers Park). The original KO Catering and Pies can be found at 87 A Street, South Boston, MA, 02127. Their website is at http://www.kocateringandpies.com/
