The group behind an Italian restaurant within a new development in Boston's South End will be opening a brand new spot across the street.

Boston Magazine is reporting that Colin Lynch, Heather Lynch, Jefferson Macklin, and Ryan Lotz of Bar Mezzana on Harrison Avenue in the Ink Block are planning to open Shore Leave, which will be a tiki bar and restaurant that is currently in design mode and could be opening later this year if all goes as planned. Very little information has been given on the upcoming spot, so stay tuned as more details start to come in.

Bar Mezzana first opened in the Ink Block in June of 2016, with the dining and drinking spot featuring coastal Italian fare.

The address for Shore Leave will be 345 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118. Its website will be at
