Wichit Is Moving from Lawrence to Boston's Back Bay

A breakfast and lunch spot in Lawrence that features an array of sandwiches is getting ready to move to the Back Bay of Boston.

According to their Facebook page, Wichit on Union Street in the Everett Mills building has closed and is moving to Boston, and a post on the EveryBlock Boston site indicates that their new address will be 244 Newbury Street in the Back Bay, which is near the Fairfield Street intersection. Wichit first opened in the historic Everett Mills in Lawrence in late 2009, replacing the Mill City Gourmet. The restaurant offers bagels, frittatas, burritos, soups, salads, and sandwiches, including such hot and cold sandwiches as NY strip sirloin, pastrami, chicken, turkey, prosciutto, veggie, and tuna. Sandwiches at Wichit come with such toppings and extras as Gruyere cheese, shredded sauerkraut, roasted garlic aioli, sauteed portabella mushrooms, dried cranberries, apple wood bacon, avocado, and more.

[May 29 update: According to their Facebook page, Wichit will be opening on Newbury Street sometime this summer.]

[December 18 update: Eater Boston is reporting that Wichit is now open on Newbury Street.]

Our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) has featured Wichit as a place to check out for sandwiches, with the review being at the link below.
