November 2013 Openings and Closings

A bit early perhaps but after reading the sad, nostalgic news I thought it should be posted: According to Boston Restaurant Talk the Quencher Tavern in South Boston has sold their liquor license to the Painted Burro folks and the Quencher will be closing in November. I have many fond memories of drinking cheap beer and eating hot dogs with my roommates after moving to Southie right after college.

  1. Boston Bagel Company, at the corner of East Broadway and L Street (former site of a bank) in Southie, looks like it's within a week or two of opening. Menu promises a variety of bagels, breakfast sandwiches, salads, deli-style sandwiches, and coffee.

    Bummer about the Quencher closing. Been getting my last licks in. It's a real old-time neighborhood place.

    1. Based on the email from Nookie to his Kickstarter backers, I would expect to see Commonwealth open in the early part of the month.

          Facebook indicates that they they have people in the space today.

      2. Slowbones Modern BBQ in Burlington should be opening in early to mid-November. The person behind it is one of the founders of Boston Market.

          1. Anyone know why The Waterside Tap and Grille in Methuen closed?

              figured I would call this post back out - anyone know anything more on this space?
