Kingston Grille and Bar Opens in Downtown Boston
Lat summer, we reported that a restaurant and bar in the heart of Boston had closed for renovations. Now we have learned that a new spot with a similar name has opened in the space.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Kingston Grille & Bar has been in the process of having a soft opening over the past few weeks, and while it appears to be open on weekdays only for now, a Facebook post from the place indicates that it will start opening on weekends as well at some point. The restaurant's website shows that it focuses mostly on both classic American and New American fare including lamb sliders, burgers, pressed Italian subs, pulled pork sandwiches, half roasted chicken, pork chop mole verde, cioppino seafood stew, and spaghetti and clams, while drinks include a variety of beers and cocktails. The site also mentions that the space consists of a cafe in the front along with a dining room and a bar, while an earlier article from the Improper Bostonian says that a small stage next to the bar is set up for live music which will take place on weekends.
Kingston Grille & Bar replaces Kingston Station, which shut down last August after being in business for approximately eight years. The new spot has connections to such local places as Abby Lane, Cure Lounge, Icon, and Venu.
The address for Kingston Grille & Bar is 25 Kingston Street, Boston, MA, 02111. Its website can be found at http://kgbboston.com/
