Coppersmith to Open in South Boston
It looks like a brand new restaurant and bar is coming to a mostly industrial part of South Boston, with the plans including some interesting features to the place.
Boston.com is reporting that John Childs and business partner Jerry Curtains are looking to open Coppersmith in a building on W 3rd Street that used to be a machine shop, with the dining spot possibly having up to 250 seats, an outdoor patio, a rooftop garden, a 20-car parking lot, and space for two food trucks. The article says that the new eatery could have a cafe feel to it at lunchtime, with the space becoming more of a full-service restaurant at dinner, featuring comfort food and affordable farm-to-table fare A full liquor license has already been acquired for Coppersmith, though a common victualler license is still needed.
[February 12 update: Universal Hub mentions that the Boston Licensing Board will make a decision tomorrow on the proposed Coppersmith, with the article also saying that the two food trucks that would be on the premises would not actually be mobile, instead being "hard-wired" into the building.]
