Sportello in Boston's Fort Point to Do Away with Bakery Area, Focus More on Italian Food and Wine
An eatery from one of Boston's best-known restaurateurs is going to be undergoing some changes.
Eater Boston is reporting that Sportello in the city's Fort Point neighborhood will be closing for renovations for a day and a half during the week of Thanksgiving (dates to come) and when it reopens, the bakery/to-go section will be gone (takeout sandwiches, baked goods, coffee, etc.), replaced with what appears to be more tables for lunch and dinner service with the focus being more on their Italian dishes and wine list. Barbara Lynch first opened Sportello five years ago, and these changes are part of a five-year anniversary celebration, according to the restaurant's website. (Lynch is also behind such places as Menton, Drink, The Butcher Shop, No. 9 Park, and B&G Oysters.)
[November 26 update: A new post from Eater Boston states (via a Facebook post from the restaurant) that Sportello is now closed for renovations and will remain so through Thanksgiving. As a reminder, this also means that the bakery area of Sportello is now officially gone.]
The address for Sportello is 348 Congress Street, Boston, MA, 02210. Its website can be found at http://sportelloboston.com/
