New Restaurant Proposed for Boston's Downtown Crossing

A new restaurant is planning to open in the heart of Boston, taking over the space where a store that sold buttons and yarn had been for nearly 80 years.

According to @CappyinBoston, a dining spot tentatively called Cut and Sew is being proposed for the former Windsor Button site on Temple Place in Downtown Crossing. This is the same space that was slated to be home to a location of Somerville's Painted Burro, though those plans appeared to fall through sometime last spring or summer. Very little is currently known about this new restaurant, including what kind of food it might serve and when it may open; as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here.

[May 11 update: Eater Boston mentions (via a Facebook post from The REAL Downtown Crossing Page) that the people behind the proposed restaurant in the old Windsor Button space include the owner of The Living Room in the North End and a partner from 6one7 Promotions, which is a Boston-based nightlife promotional company.]

[August 27 update: According to a post from Universal Hub, the owner of the now-closed Windsor Button is close to finalizing an agreement that would allow the restaurant to take over its space. (It is not known if the dining spot will still be called Cut and Sew.)]

The address for this proposed restaurant is 35 Temple Place, Boston, MA, 02111.
