Tonic Is Opening in Jamaica Plain

It looks like a martini bar is planning to open near the Forest Hills T station in Jamaica Plain.

According to The Boston Real Estate Blog, the person behind the upcoming Tonic on Washington Street is in talks with local groups to cement the plans for bringing the restaurant and bar to the neighborhood. The blog mentions that the owner has a liquor license for the place, which, according to an earlier article from Grub Street Boston, may be a bit like Vee Vee and Ten Tables, a couple of upscale neighborhood bistros in Jamaica Plain.

Tonic will be taking over the space where Griffin's Cafe, a now-closed neighborhood watering hole, used to be.

It is not known exactly when Tonic might open; as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here.

[April 12, 2012 update: According to CBH Communications,  Tonic will be opening on Saturday (April 14) at 5:00 PM.]

The address for this new martini bar in the Forest Hills section of Jamaica Plain will be: Tonic, 3698 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130.
