Coppersmith May Be Opening in South Boston
A brand new restaurant and bar could be 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, 2014 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.]
[February 18, 2014 update: Boston.com states that the Boston Licensing Board has approved of a liquor license transfer to Coppersmith. (Note: The article says that the license was transferred from the now-closed Purple Shamrock, though earlier articles said that it may be coming from Remington's, which is also closed.)]
If all goes well, Coppersmith could open as early as April, according to the article.
The address for this planned restaurant in South Boston is: Coppersmith, 40 West 3rd street, South Boston, MA, 02127.
