Belle Isle Seafood Is Moving to Winthrop
It looks like a seafood place in East Boston is moving to a neighboring town, though the new space might end up being a very short distance from the old space.
According to a veteran poster on the Chowhound site, Belle Isle Seafood on Saratoga Street is going to be heading to Winthrop, though the poster says "don't worry, it's barely 100 yards away," indicating that the new space could be just over the bridge from their current spot (the eatery sits at a bridge connecting East Boston to Winthrop). A post from the Whispering Winthrop site also mentions that "Belle Isle Seafood has to move soon and the Mirak building is perfect," with Mirak apparently referring to a property that is on the other side of the bridge. (The post cannot seem to be pulled up on the site itself, but it can be found via a Google search.)
Belle Isle Seafood is known in part for its lobster rolls, but it also offers such items as clam chowder, swordfish, haddock, crab cakes, fried clams, oysters, shrimp, scallops, and calamari.
[November 11 update: A phone call placed to the restaurant indicates that Belle Isle Seafood has closed its East Boston location and will be reopening in its new Winthrop location on Tuesday (November 13). We are still trying to find out its exact address in Winthrop; as soon as we do, we will post another update here. (Thanks to a poster on Chowhound for bringing this to our attention.)]
[November 13 update: A note from Belle Isle Seafood confirms that it is now open in its new home. The new address is: Belle Isle Seafood, 1 Main Street, Winthrop, MA, 02152.]
