SlowBones Is Opening in Burlington
It looks like a new barbecue joint is on its way to the Boston area, with this one opening north of the city.
According to a picture sent to us by @Lin_Dolin via Twitter, SlowBones Modern BBQ is planning to open in Burlington, with a page on the Town of Burlington website indicating that the restaurant will be located on Mall Road just east of the Middlesex Turnpike. Very little information on SlowBones can be found at this point in time other than Dodge Lead Center mentioning that the eatery will apparently have about 1,600 square feet of space.
As soon as we have more information on this place, we will post an update here.
[October 8 update: SlowBones is currently hiring, according to another picture sent by @Lin_Dolin; also, the website for SlowBones is showing what will be on the menu there, with items including pulled pork, brisket, St. Louis ribs, wings, shrimp burgers, sweet potato pie, and macaroni and cheese.]
[October 15 update: The Boston Business Journal mentions that the person behind SlowBones is Boston Market co-founder Steven "Kip" Kolow.]
[October 31 update: According to @Lin_Dolin, it looks like it may be another two weeks or so before SlowBones will open, based on a call made to the restaurant. Also, more information has been posted by Linear Retail, which says it is moving into the former D'Angelo space and will be a quick-casual spot that offers dishes made using "fresh, quality ingredients."]
[November 19 update: SlowBones has not yet opened in Burlington, but more news has come out about the place, including The Boston Globe stating that Kip Kolow has plans to go national with the BBQ spot. An email sent to us from CBH Communications seems to confirm this, as they are saying that the restaurant will indeed be expanding to other parts of the country, with California apparently being next.]
[November 19 update #2: Foodservice East is reporting that there could end up being an estimated eight to ten locations of SlowBones in the Boston area at some point.]
[December 4 update: A new Facebook post from SlowBones indicates that it is opening today.]
