Sixth Gear Is Opening in South Boston

It looks like a new restaurant is coming to South Boston, moving into the space where a few other dining spots have been.

Eater Boston is reporting (via a licensing board page within the city of Boston site) that Sixth Gear is planning to open on L Street, taking over the spot that had been home to Sauce, and before that, Wolfie's Kitchen And Bar and Kelly's Landing. Based on the hearing page, it appears that the new place will have one room for dining along with a bar with seating for 10, with the spot hoping to have a closing time of 1:00 AM. Little other information on Sixth Gear is available at this point in time; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

The address for this upcoming restaurant and bar in Southie is: Sixth Gear, 81 L Street, South Boston, MA, 02127. Its website will be at

[October 9, 2015 update: It appears that Sixth Gear is getting closer to opening, as a Twitter post shows that the place is now hiring. And while there is still very little information on the restaurant, its website has the slogan "Purveyors of Unique and Modern American Sustenance."]

[January 7, 2016 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that Sixth Gear is planning to open on January 22, and that it will offer a mix of small plates and large entrees as well as beer, wine, and cocktails, with the focus being on New American fare.]

[January 21, 2016 update: A Twitter post from @chipsy231 reiterates that Sixth Gear will open to the public Friday evening.]
