111 East Restaurant Is Opening in Boston's Seaport District

It looks like a new restaurant may be coming to the Boston waterfront, and the people behind another waterfront spot appear to be involved.

According to a licensing board hearing page within the city's website, 111 East Restaurant is seeking a beer and wine license to operate at a space on Fan Pier Boulevard in the Seaport District, with the notice indicating that the dining spot would have seating for 83 inside and as many as 15 additional seats on a seasonal outdoor patio. An OpenCorporates page shows that Kathryn Cook of The Fusion Group and Marco Coelho are involved with the business, with Coelho (and Cook along with The Fusion Group itself) being behind Lola 42, a bistro and sushi bar that is basically around the corner from the space for the proposed 111 East. There is currently very little information on what food/drink 111 East might offer, so keep checking back for updates.

Marco Coelho also runs Lola 41, a bistro and sushi bar on Nantucket.

The address for the proposed 111 East in the Seaport District is 11 Fan Pier Boulevard, Boston, MA, 02110.

[May 17 update: Eater Boston states that 111 East will be an Asian bistro and hot pot restaurant and that it hopes to open in June.]

[July 3 update: A new article from Eater Boston says that 111 East plans to open on Friday, July 5.]
