Foundry Kitchen to Open in Former Loco Tapas Space in Easton
Last fall we reported that a tapas restaurant south of Boston had temporarily closed, as it was looking to "re-imagine" the place. Now we have learned that the closure is permanent, with the owner of a nearby restaurant and bar opening a new eatery in the space.
The Easton Journal and Enterprise is reporting that Neil Levine of Maguire's Bar & Grill on Foundry Street is going to open Foundry Kitchen in the space (also on Foundry Street) where Loco Tapas & Wine Bar had been. The article says that Maguire--along with his backers and partners--purchased the building in an auction over the winter, with the keys to the place being given to him last week. It looks like Foundry Kitchen will focus on New American cuisine with Asian, French, and Italian influences, with the restaurant being open for dinner only. No big changes are expected to be made to the space, according to the article.
[July 18 update: Wicked Local Newton mentions that Foundry Kitchen should be opening in approximately a month.]
Loco Tapas was featured on our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) as a lesser-known spot to go to for Spanish tapas and meals. The review can be found at this link:
The address for the upcoming Foundry Kitchen is 520 Foundry Street, South Easton, MA, 02375.
