New Restaurant and Bar to Replace Sonny's in Dorchester's Adams Village
Last month we reported that a decades-old restaurant and bar in Dorchester abruptly shut down, and now we have learned that what we had heard last year about the future of the spot indeed seems to be taking place.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the Dorchester Reporter) that a dining and drinking spot will be opening in the space in Adams Village where Sonny's Pub & Restaurant had been until suddenly closing in late October. The articles say that the space will be completely gutted and it will be rebuilt as a new restaurant and bar that will have a "downtown feel and neighborhood prices," with the plan being to open sometime next spring if all goes well.
Last October, we had mentioned that it appeared a new spot called Industry might replace Sonny's and that Martin Davis (from the now-closed Littlest Bar in downtown Boston) and David Arrowsmith would be behind it, and while the two of them are definitely partners in the new spot, it turns out that the place does not yet have a name.
Sonny's Pub & Restaurant had been open for approximately 50 years.
The address for the former Sonny's space in Adams Village is 750 Adams Street, Dorchester, MA, 02122.
[April 14, 2017 update: The Dorchester Reporter mentions that the upcoming spot moving into the Sonny's space will indeed be called Industry, and it will be a restaurant and lounge that features American comfort food and an extensive list of wines and whiskeys. If all goes as planned, the place should open sometime this summer.]
