Grainne O'Malley's in Brookline Has Opened
Last week, we reported that one of the last of the old-school dining and drinking spots in Brookline had closed. Now we have learned that a new restaurant and bar that was planning to move into the space is now open.
A recent check on the space indicates that Grainne O'Malley's is now open where the Corrib Pub had been, with a phone call placed to the Harvard Street pub indicating that it actually opened its doors last Sunday. As mentioned earlier, it appears that Grainne O'Malley's is starting out as an Irish pub, but it may morph into more of a gastropub at some point.
The Corrib first opened in Brookline back in the mid-1980s, and was one of three locations in the Boston area. (The other two locations in West Roxbury and Brighton remain in business.)
The address for this new pub in Brookline is: Grainne O'Malley's, 201 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446.
