Plans Fall Through Yet Again for the Windsor Button Space in Boston's Downtown Crossing
Last month we reported that an iconic space in downtown Boston could finally be getting a restaurant after a series of plans fell through, but now we have learned that this will not be happening after all.
According to a source, the former Windsor Button space in Downtown Crossing now has a sign up saying "Restaurant or Retail Space for Lease," several weeks after a proposal was put in place--and then withdrawn--for a dining spot called Niku Ramen to open at the Temple Place site. This is the same space that The Painted Burro in Somerville's Davis Square had been looking at, along with another restaurant called Cut and Sew, and we have been told that other people had been looking at the space as well only to decide against opening a place there.
Windsor Button had been in operation for nearly 80 years until it closed in 2013.
