Mick Morgan's in Newton to Become Grande Kitchen + Bar

It looks like a suburban Irish pub will soon be undergoing some changes.

According to a Twitter post from Boston Herald writer @DGoodison, the people behind Mick Morgan's in Newton Upper Falls are requesting a name change to Grande Kitchen + Bar, with a hearing notice showing that the city of Newton will be looking into the request on April 11. At this point in time, no information has been given on the extent of changes that would be made to switch Mick Morgan's over to Grande Kitchen + Bar, and it is not known if the Sharon location of the pub would also be undergoing changes; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

Mick Morgan's first opened in Newton in late 2009, with the Sharon location debuting in the spring of 2011.

The address for Mick Morgan's (and the proposed Grande Kitchen + Bar) is 118 Needham Street, Newton, MA, 02464. The website for both locations can be found at http://www.mickmorgans.com/

[April 11 update: Based on a note on its website, it appears that the Newton location of Mick Morgan's is now closed and will remain so until it reopens presumably as Grande Kitchen + Bar.]

[June 19 update: A job post within the Craigslist site indicates that Grande Kitchen + Bar plans to open on Thursday, June 22, and that it will be a New American restaurant.]

[June 22 update: A Facebook post from the place indicates that Grande Kitchen + Bar is now open.]
