R.F. O'Sullivan's in Somerville Is Expanding to Lynn
A restaurant and pub in Somerville that some consider to have the best burgers in the Boston area is looking to expand, with a new location planned for the North Shore.
According to an article in the Lynn Journal, R.F.O'Sullivan & Son has made a bid on the old Kevin's Corner pub space on Central Avenue in Lynn. The newspaper says that owner Richard "Frank" Sullivan was the only bidder on the property, with the Swampscott resident saying that he wants to do "the exact same thing" that he has done with the original pub on Beacon Street by the Cambridge/Somerville line. Lynn City Councilor Richard Collucci indicates that it looks good for the new O'Sullivan's to open, saying that "It's probably 99-percent that he'll get the property." If all goes as planned, the new pub could be open by the end of August, according to the Journal.
[September 23 update: The Daily Item mentions that the new O'Sullivan's in Lynn is now looking at a December opening; the article also says that the eating and drinking spot will have mahogany exterior walls, stone interior walls, and a fireplace.]
[March 13, 2015 update: According to a Twitter post from The Phantom Gourmet (and confirmed by the restaurant's Facebook page), the new location of O'Sullivan's in Lynn opens tomorrow.]
