Sweet Caroline's Modern Pizza + Bar Is Opening in Boston's Fenway
It looks like a restaurant in the Fenway section of Boston that closed last fall is coming back as a new concept with a similar name.
According to a job post within the Craigslist site, Sweet Caroline's Modern Pizza + Bar is opening sometime this month and is currently looking to staff the place. Based on its name, it can be assumed that the new spot will be moving into the former Sweet Caroline's Bar & Restaurant space on Boylston Street, especially considering that when it closed in October, a phone call placed to them indicated that it was "closed for renovations."
Sweet Caroline's, which first opened in September of 2011, had initially been run by the people behind Battery Park Bar & Lounge on Batterymarch Street in Boston's Financial District, though a Twitter post from that restaurant indicates that the owners of Slate Bar & Grill (also in the Financial District) took the place over. (It is not known whether Slate is behind the upcoming Sweet Caroline's Modern Pizza + Bar; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.)
[April 3 update: Eater Boston mentions that Slate Bar & Grill is apparently not behind the upcoming Sweet Caroline's Modern Pizza + Bar; instead, the restaurant group KLW Hospitality, which runs Hong Kong Eatery, Quic Pic BBQ, and Suishaya in Chinatown, along with Ming Dynasty in Mansfield, is going to be operating the spot.]
[April 13 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that Sweet Caroline's Modern Pizza + Bar is now open.]
Assuming that Sweet Caroline's Modern Pizza + Bar is indeed moving into the former Sweet Caroline's Bar & Restaurant space, its address will be 1260 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215.
