Met on Main, Sea Dog Pub to Open on Nantucket
Two very different restaurants that have branches in the Boston area are each planning an island location.
The Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror reports that Met on Main and the Sea Dog Pub are looking to open on Nantucket, with each recently receiving licenses by the Board of Selectmen this week. Met on Main will be opened by the group behind several upscale restaurants in and around Boston, including the Met Back Bay, the Metropolitan Club in Chestnut Hill and the Met Bar in Dedham and Natick, while the Sea Dog Pub will be opened by the Maine-based microbrewery of the same name that also has brewpubs in Woburn and Hull. The article mentions that both restaurants could be open before the summer season behind.
[June 18 update: The Sea Dog Pub is now open on Nantucket, while the Chowder blog from Boston Magazine reports that Met on Main will be opening next week.]
Met on Main will be taking over the Main Street space where the Even Keel Cafe used to be; the Sea Dog brew pub will move into the South Water Street spot where Cy's had been.
