Sorelle Bar & Grill in Abington to Open in Former Vin & Eddie's Space

Earlier this year, we reported that an iconic Italian restaurant south of Boston was closing and would be replaced by a new Italian eatery. Now we have learned that the upcoming dining spot may be getting close to opening.

According to an article in Wicked Local Abington, Sorelle Bar & Grill is hoping to open in the old Vin & Eddie's space sometime in November and that renovations are currently underway. The post indicates that chef/owner Andrea Schnell plans to make the new restaurant more of a modern Italian spot than the old-school Vin & Eddie's had been, though the place will retain some of the touches of the previous restaurant, as parts of the space are being re-purposed. Schnell and Sorelle general manager Mark Doherty were co-workers at the Square Cafe in Hingham before deciding to open their own restaurant.

Vin & Eddie's, had been in business since 1955.

The address for the upcoming Sorelle Bar & Grill is 1400 Bedford Street, Abington, MA, 02351.

[November 24 update: A new article in Wicked Local Abington indicates that Sorelle Bar & Grill will likely not be opening in November, as Andrea Schnell says "Originally the plan was to do a remodel, but when the contractors opened the place up it became apparent that we had to do an extensive structural remodel to make it work for our plan....It is going to delay us, but we are really excited because now it’s going to be even newer, better and bigger."]

[March 26, 2017 update: Wicked Local is now saying that Sorelle Bar & Grill will open on April 4.]
