Article 24 to Replace The Boyne in Brighton

Last fall we reported that the folks behind a couple of Boston-area restaurants were looking into opening two more spots over the coming year. Now we have learned where one of them might be.

According to a Licensing Board page within the City of Boston website, a restaurant/bar that is tentatively called Kitchen Sink is hoping to acquire the liquor license from The Boyne, an Irish pub that is located in Brighton, with the new spot planning to open within that Western Avenue space. The person listed as the manager of the proposed restaurant is Jayson Goldstein, who also is one of the people behind the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, which runs Local 149 in South Boston and The Biltmore Bar and Grille in Newton. It is not yet known when The Boyne might close or when the new spot could open; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

The address for The Boyne (and the proposed new spot) is 458 Western Avenue, Brighton, MA, 02135.

Thanks to a poster on the Chowhound site for bringing this to our attention.

[October 27 update: Eater Boston is reporting (via a Licensing Board page) that the new restaurant coming to The Boyne space will apparently be called Local 458, not Kitchen Sink.]

[January 22, 2015 update: The BostonChefs.com jobs section seems to indicate that the restaurant tentatively called Local 458 will be opening "shortly," and as mentioned in an earlier article, there is apparently another dining spot coming from the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, though nothing is known about that spot at this point in time.]

[February 20, 2015 update: Eater Boston mentions (via a new Licensing Board page) that another name change may be taking place, with the upcoming spot now being called Article 24.]

[February 26, 2016 update: A Craigslist job post indicates that Article 24 will open in March, and that it is currently looking for a "rock star opening staff."]
