Lucy's American Tavern Is Opening in Dorchester
Last year, we reported that a new restaurant and bar was looking to open in Dorchester and that there was a possible connection to a few other dining spots in the Boston area. Now we have learned that a restaurant with a different name is opening soon in the space, though apparently with at least part of the same team behind it.
According to a job post within the Craigslist site, Lucy's American Tavern is going to be opening at the corner of Gallivan Boulevard and Granite Avenue in the Adams Village neighborhood of Dorchester, with a check on the place indicating that at least one person from the Tavern in the Square restaurant group being involved. In March of 2015, it was announced that Sam Maverick's was hoping to open in the same space, and that it, too, had a Tavern in the Square connection. It is not known if Lucy's American Tavern will be a direct part of the Tavern in the Square group; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
The address for this upcoming dining and drinking spot in Dorchester is: Lucy's American Tavern, 11 Granite Avenue, Dorchester, MA, 02124. [Ed note: The address for Sam Maverick's had been listed as 489 Gallivan Boulevard, though the two addresses seem to point to the same space--the former Hollywood Video property.]
[June 10 update: Eater Boston states that Lucy's hopes to open sometime this summer, and that it will feature "approachable" American comfort food with such items as mini corn dogs, salt and pepper calamari, smoked wings, Cuban sandwiches, tacos, and chicken and sweet potato waffles being a few possibilities, along with 27 beers and 4 wines on tap.]
[August 16 update: A message from the restaurant indicates that Lucy's opens its doors tomorrow at 4:00 PM.]
