Pastoral to Open in Boston's Fort Point Neighborhood
A new restaurant that focuses on pizza will be opening in the red-hot Fort Point district of Boston.
The Boston Herald is reporting that George Lewis (formerly of the now-closed Foundation Lounge in Kenmore Square) and Todd Winer (culinary director for the Met Restaurant Group) are looking to open Pastoral on Congress Street, moving into the Neena's Lighting space. The article mentions that the 140-seat eatery will be a "pizza-centric" spot that offers Neapolitan pies cooked in a stone oven that is being brought over from Italy, along with dishes with Mediterranean influences. Pastoral could be open by the summer, according to the Herald.
[September 5 update: The Restaurant Hub blog of The Boston Globe states that Pastoral is now looking to open in the middle of December, having pushed back a possible September opening because of "contracting woes."]
The address for this upcoming dining spot is: Pastoral, 343 Congress Street, Boston, MA, 02210.
