Stephi's in Southie Is Opening in South Boston
[Ed note: This article was updated on January 16, 2013 to reflect an exact name given for the place.]
The folks behind a trendy and upscale restaurant in Boston's Back Bay (and a second spot in the South End) are planning to open a third place, with this one being in South Boston.
Boston.com is reporting that Stephanie's on Newbury will be opening a restaurant on West Broadway, moving into the space near the Broadway T stop where The Quiet Man pub used to be. It appears that the new name may be Stephanie's as well, though we are still trying to confirm this (their other restaurant on Tremont Street in the South End has a slightly different name--Stephi's on Tremont). The article mentions that the new spot will be open for lunch and dinner (with brunch on weekends), and it could be open by April of 2013.
[January 16, 2013 update: The name of the restaurant will be Stephi's in Southie, according to the Boston Globe, with the eatery possibly opening in June. (Thanks to Eater Boston for bringing this to our attention.)]
[September 19, 2013 update: The Boston Globe mentions today that Stephi's in Southie could open as early as next Tuesday (September 24).]
[September 23, 2013 update: UrbanDaddy says that Stephanie's is opening to the public on Wednesday (September 25).]
Stephanie's on Newbury first opened in 1994, while Stephi's on Tremont opened in 2009. Both dining spots focus on upscale comfort food.
The address for this new restaurant in South Boston is: Stephi's in Southie, 11 West Broadway, South Boston, MA, 02127.
