Elsie's Table Is Opening in the Former Big D's Neponset Cafe Space in Canton

Earlier this year, it was reported that a longtime suburban watering hole that was known in part for its bar pizza was closing, and now we have learned what will be taking over the space.

According to a source, Elsie's Table is planning to open in Canton, moving into the former Big D's Neponset Cafe space on Washington Street. The website for the upcoming restaurant mentions that it will offer "a diverse selection of globally and locally inspired dishes" with its menu including such options as French onion soup, flatbreads and bruschetta, lamb chops, arancini, Asian chicken lettuce wraps, Chilean sea bass, pumpkin ravioli, squash risotto, and apple strudel. No opening date has been given as of yet for Elsie's Table, with the website saying that it hopes to debut sometime this fall.

Big D's Neponset Cafe closed down in February after being in operation since 1949.

The address for Elsie's Table is 497 Washington Street, Canton, MA, 02021.

[December 20 update: A poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page says that Elsie's Table opened on December 19, with a Facebook post from the place confirming this.]
