The Townshend Is Opening in Quincy Center

A new restaurant and bar is on its way to Quincy, opening in a mixed-use property in the heart of the city.

According to a post within the jobs section of the site, The Townshend is coming to Quincy Center and is looking to staff its kitchen for its upcoming opening. A web check shows a bare-bones website for the spot, with the sole page indicating that it will be a "modern tavern" opening in Presidents Place, which is located on Hancock Street by the circle in the downtown area and is currently home to Quincy College, a location of Dunkin' Donuts, and the Adams National Historical Park visitor center. Little else is known about The Townshend, including the owner(s), when it might open, what the setup of the place may be, and what its menu might include; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

[May 12 update: The Boston Herald mentions that The Townshend plans to open this weekend, with owner Devin Adams and chef Bobby Sisson having worked for two of the best-known chefs and restaurateurs in the Boston area--Barbara Lynch and Garrett Harker.]
