224 Boston Restaurant in Dorchester Up for Sale

The building housing an award-winning restaurant that has been around for 30 years is up for sale--and it looks like the dining spot is included in the sale.

According to a couple of sources, including a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, the property which includes 224 Boston Street Restaurant in Dorchester is on the market for $2,500,000, with the post linking to a Coldwell Banker listing that mentions the building includes "first floor commercial/restaurant space with a fully transferable 1:00 a.m. liquor license" and that the business is indeed included in the sale. The sale also includes two apartments as well and says that "The possibilities are endless for this residential/commercial space."

224 Boston Street is known in part for its cozy atmosphere and reasonably-priced New American fare; Zagat says in its listing that it was a "neighborhood game changer" when it first opened back in the 1980s, with the Boston Business Journal posting that Zagat awarded it the #4 restaurant in Massachusetts for 2014 in a list made up of dining spots most frequently named by Zagat respondents as their favorites.

[September 27 update: Based on a licensing board hearing notice within the City of Boston website, it looks like 224 Boston may remain in operation, as the current holder of the liquor license is petitioning to transfer it to a new owner with the name remaining as is--at least for now. The notice also mentions that the proposed new manager is Eric Aulenback, who is also involved with such spots as Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant, Capo, and Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar in South Boston.]
