Tavern in the Square Is Opening at South Station in Boston
Earlier this year, we reported that a local chain of dining and drinking spots was looking to open two more locations. Since then, it has been announced that one would be west of Boston, and now we have learned that the other location could be in the heart of the city.
According to a follower of the hiddenboston Twitter page, an alcohol license is apparently being transferred to Tavern in the Square for a location in South Station. A web search shows Bizapedia as mentioning that the restaurant and bar may indeed be opening there, making this their other new location (Tavern in the Square is also opening in Northborough). No confirmation on the South Station outlet has been made as of yet, so keep checking back for updates.
[July 16 update: Universal Hub mentions that Tavern in the Square is indeed looking to open at South Station, and it will be meeting with the Boston Licensing Board on July 31 to seek permission for a liquor license.]

[August 13 update: A new job post on the Craigslist site says that South Station's Tavern in the Square is "preparing to open," with the free-standing spot being even smaller than originally thought (700 square feet) and offering more than 30 different draft beers, along with a full liquor menu.]
