Silver Dove Afternoon Tea to Open in Downtown Boston

A brand new tearoom is on its way to the heart of Boston.

According to a job post within the Craigslist website, Silver Dove Afternoon Tea is planning to open on Tremont Street in the Downtown Crossing area across from Center Plaza, with the spot having 24 seats and offering pastries, baked goods, and sandwiches. The website for Silver Dove shows Patrick Brewster as the General Manager and Lee Morgan as the Director of Operations; both Brewster and Morgan have been involved in the local bar/cocktail scene, including the two of them being alums of Drink in Fort Point.

If all goes as planned, Silver Dove Afternoon Tea will open in the early part of 2023.

The address for Silver Dove Afternoon Tea is 24 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02108. Its website can be found at at https://silverdovetea.com/

Please Support Our Fundraiser

Stepping away from restaurant news for a minute, some of you know that I'm helping raise funds via GoFundMe for a family member who is dealing with a health issue and is currently in a respite room at an assisted living facility as we try to figure out how--and if--he can improve enough to be able to come home again. For at least the time being, he remains in the respite room, and along with the stress of the situation in general, we also have to worry about the weight of the heavy financial burden affecting us. More information can be found at the link below, and please leave a message of support as well.

Thank you very much!  -Marc

Red Robin in Braintree Has Closed

A chain of burger restaurants has said farewell to the Greater Boston area, shutting down its last location along/inside Route 128.

According to a source, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews at the South Shore Plaza in Braintree is no longer in business, with the website for the chain confirming this, as that outlet is no longer shown within the locations page for Massachusetts. With the closing of this location and the Woburn outlet a couple of years back, the closest Red Robin to Boston is now in Foxborough, with others remaining in operation in Holyoke, Millbury, Plymouth, and Wareham.

Red Robin was established in Seattle in 1969 and is currently headquartered in Colorado. The website for the chain can be found at https://www.redrobin.com/

99 Restaurant & Pub in Canton Is Closing

A local chain of family-friendly restaurants is closing another one of its locations.

According to a source, the 99 Restaurant & Pub in Canton is shutting down this weekend, with a call placed to the Turnpike Street spot confirming that it will close after business hours on Sunday November 27. This will be the third location of the chain to close this year, with outlets in Somerville and Saugus also shutting down, though the Saugus closure was more of a move of sorts as a new location opened in Middleton a few weeks after it shuttered.

The address for the 99 Restaurant & Pub in Canton is 362 Turnpike Street (Route 138), Canton, MA, 02021. The website for the chain can be found at https://www.99restaurants.com/

Wow Tikka to Open in Boston's Fenway Neighborhood

A new restaurant that appears to have a connection to a dining spot in Boston's northern suburbs is on its way to the Fenway.

According to a source, Wow Tikka is opening soon on Peterborough Street, with a voting hearing agenda page within the city's website saying that the eatery will include a seasonal patio and that the manager is Kannan Kesavalu, who is presumably the same Kannan Kesavalu who runs Maya Indian Bar & Grill in Wakefield. The website for the place has not been set up as of yet and its Facebook page has very little information at this point in time; as soon as we find out more, including what will be on its menu and when it might open, we will post an update here.

The address for Wow Tikka is 84 Peterborough Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Its Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/wowtikka/

Jeveli's in East Boston Goes on the Auction Block

It looks like a landmark restaurant in East Boston whose future had been in question for awhile may be done.

According to a page from Stanley J. Paine, Jeveli's went up for auction beginning on November 10 and ending on November 16, with the notice saying that "we will sell...the entire contents of the former Jeveli's restaurant. Property sold. Everything goes!" The notice says that Stanley J. Paine held the auction in association with E.F Smith and Son, while Drew Starr posted last week within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook page (via a post from Seth Gitell) that it didn't look like the restaurant would be coming back, with pictures showing a mostly cleared out space.

Jeveli's first opened in 1924, being billed as the oldest Italian restaurant in Boston; it initially shut down for the winter in November of 2020 due to the pandemic but it never ended up reopening, leading to much speculation about its future.

The address for Jeveli's was 387 Chelsea Street, East Boston, MA, 02128.
