Brewer's Coalition Is Opening in Newtonville

[Ed note: This article was updated on June 19 to reflect a new/corrected name for the place. Thanks to Eater Boston for bringing this to our attention (via the Newton Patch).]

A dining and drinking establishment with two locations in the Boston area is going to be opening a new spot, with this one taking over a Newtonville space where a couple of Mediterranean restaurants had been.

The blog for the Newton TAB reports that John Brewer's Tavern, which has locations in Waltham and Malden, is planning to open a new restaurant and bar on Walnut Street in the former C. Tsar's/Ariadne spot. (C. Tsar's closed last fall about a year after replacing Ariadne.) The article mentions that the Newtonville eatery (which will be called Brewer's Coalition--see note above) will be "smaller and more intimate" than their nearby Waltham restaurant, with the feel of a "relaxed pub-style restaurant." Expect to see comfort food items at the new eatery (burgers, steak tips, chicken pot pie) along with an extensive craft beer list.

No opening date has been set as of yet for the new Brewer's Coalition in Newtonville, as some approvals are still needed from the City of Newton, according to the TAB.

[June 19 update: Eater Boston (via the Newton Patch) mentions that Brewer's Coalition is planning to open in Newtonville on August 1. (See links at top of article.)]

[August 15 update: The Newton Patch is reporting that Brewer's Coalition is now open.]

The address for this new restaurant in Newtonville is: Brewer's Coalition, 344 Walnut Street, Newton, MA, 02460. The website is at: http://www.johnbrewerstavern.com/
