New Restaurant to Open Next Door to American Provisions in South Boston

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like an artisanal "farm-to-table" grocery store in South Boston could soon be joined by an adjacent restaurant that focuses on locally-sourced food.

Universal Hub is reporting that The Zoning Board of Appeal has given its approval for the people behind American Provisions to open a sit-down bistro next to the East Broadway market, with an earlier post from Caught in Southie saying that it will include seating for 28 along with a kitchen. Both articles say that owners Andy Faddous and Matthew Thayer hope to acquire a beer and wine license, while their attorney says that "It's something decidedly different for South Boston....It will be a non-noisy, quiet restaurant for people like us."

A second location of American Provisions opened earlier this year in Dorchester, moving into the Treadmark building in the Ashmont/Peabody Square area. (The website for both stores can be found at https://www.americanprovisions.com/)

[July 17 update: According to a licensing board hearing page, it looks like the restaurant adjacent to American Provisions may be called Gray's Hall, though it is not known whether this is just a working name at this point in time.]
