Trio in Weymouth Landing Is Closing
A couple of months ago, we reported that a South Shore restaurant that is co-owned by a state senator was in danger of losing its home because of a proposed new development going into the space. Now we have learned that the dining spot is getting ready to shut down.
The Weymouth News states that Trio in Weymouth Landing--which is owned by Senator Robert Hedlund and business partner Marko Piro Fani--is closing tomorrow (Friday, August 21), with the restaurant's Facebook page saying that "Due to the recently approved redevelopment project put forward by Josh Katzen (Landing Apartments LLC) we will be closing at midnight, Friday August 21....There are major changes in store for the Landing neighborhood, and we hope to be a part of that realized vision....We will see you down the road and stay in touch for exciting news in the future!" According to the article, the Commercial Street building in which Trio resides will be torn down along with the adjacent building that currently houses Chair Fair, with a mixed-use complex that will have apartments, retail space, and a parking garage being built at the site.
Trio opened in October of 2014, joining another restaurant (Four Square) from Hedlund and Fani that is located across the street.
