Navy Yard Bistro Is Opening a New Restaurant in Newburyport

A restaurant and wine bar in Charlestown is planning to expand northward.

According to a job post on the Craigslist site, the owner of Navy Yard Bistro is going to be opening a "similar concept," featuring New American fare for lunch and dinner in a space with seating for 100 as well as a 16-seat outdoor patio. The post does not give a name for the dining spot, nor an address, so more updates will be coming on the place at some point.

[June 3 update: According to @FoodserviceEast, the new restaurant from the owner of Navy Yard Bistro is now open, and it is called 50 Water (the address is 50 Water Street, Newburyport, MA, 01950).]

Navy Yard Bistro, which first opened by 1st Avenue and 6th Street approximately 10 years ago, features such items as baked brie, escargot, lobster dumplings, steamed mussels, roasted chicken breast, steak frites, marinated swordfish, and wild mushroom ravioli. Its website can be found at
