C.F. McCarthy's Is Opening in Canton

by Marc Hurwitz

A brand new Irish pub is coming to a southern suburb of Boston.

According to a Facebook post from co-owner Steve Carey, C.F. McCarthy's is opening in Canton, moving into the space in the center of town where Pete's Place had been. The post mentions that the pub will offer "fresh food made from quality ingredients and true independent craft beer," with 20 beers offered on draft, while wine and cocktails will be available as well. If all goes as planned, C.F. McCarthy's will be opening in January.

Carey and co-owner Gilmar Cassiano worked at the now-closed Boston Beer Garden in South Boston, and that the name of the pub is in honor of Christopher Frederick McCarthy who had also worked at the bar and, according to Carey, was "quite simply the most remarkable young man I've ever had the pleasure of knowing."

The address for this new Irish pub in Canton is: C.F. McCarthy's, 614 Washington Street, Canton, MA, 02021.

[March 28, 2019 update: A new Facebook post indicates that C.F. McCarthy's opens on April 8 at 4:00 PM.]
