Is Coppa in the SE open yet

  1. Per Grubstreet: "Coppa will open for dinner on September 15 at 253 Shawmut Ave. in the South End."

    1. I'm skeptical of that projected date. The space looks like it has a ton of work left to do before it even gets close. It's always nice to be pleasantly surprised by contractors, but how often does that happen? My money would be on no sooner than Oct 1.

      1. I was told a month behind schedule two nights ago due to structural issues in building that were unanticipated. Sounds expensive and could be awhile.

          I saw Kenny O talking about this on tv somewhere recently. They found big structural problems that look like massive steel girders are involved. Let's start a pool. I've got Oct 15.

            I'm going with October 22. May the best foodie win!

              Oct. 27th has potential from what I hear. Here's to some good meats and cheeses!

              1. A lot of heavy-duty carpentry and exterior masonry work going on recently.
