Polar Bar/City Bistro Could Open at Boston's City Hall Plaza

In late 2014, we reported that a new restaurant and bar might be on its way to downtown Boston, and that it could be part of a bigger entertainment complex. Now we have learned a bit more about the proposed dining spot as well as the complex.

The Boston Herald mentions that The Anthem Group is looking to open a 20,000-square-foot, 500-person "hospitality venue" that would include a restaurant called The Polar Bar in the winter and City Bistro in the summer, with the glass-enclosed eatery overlooking a skating rink during the colder months. The article says that the dining spot would offer regional, seasonal New England fare including special holiday meals on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah, along with clambakes and cookouts during the summer. The venue itself would be called Winter Landing during the colder months and summer landing during the warmer months, according to the Herald.

The Anthem Group was scheduled to meet with the city yesterday to talk about the proposal.
