Well, this is exciting news: the team at Broadway Restaurant Group (Lincoln, Capo, Loco, Fat Baby, Hunter’s) is opening a new spot on West Broadway in the old South Boston Chinese and Certified Meatball Company spots.

Universal Hub is reporting that the Zoning Board of Appeals approved plans by BRG to open a 352-seat restaurant called Cook House.  BRG attorney Ryan Spitz told the board that Chef Nick Dixon will be a part of the new venture. The new restaurant will be made up of small spaces offering different dining opportunities, like seating along an open, wood-fired kitchen, another group of seats around a circular fireplace, and more seats in a more cozy area beyond ceiling-height trees.  There will also be a large skylight to the ceiling to lighten things up!

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be offered at Cook House in addition to a bakery cafe!

According to Universal Hub, in addition to zoning approval, the restaurant – and a liquor license acquisition – will need the approval of the Boston Licensing Board.

So, stay tuned.

    I bet Flynn loves this idea… one company owning all these restaurants, no competition. The guy just doesn’t like options…well, except for booze.

    As a resident of the block I would like to see smaller owned & more diverse spots & retail openings. feels like a monopoly.

    I still think the parking lot across the street should be made multi level and minimal charge for parking. it would help all the businesses on West Broadway.

    We do indeed need a multi level parking bldg. They do this type of parking in Quincy for an entire area, large multi level. One of the restaurants I go to, it only cost me $2 to park for dinner. It is just a 2 minute walk to the restaurant.

    Somehow this restaurant group has convinced the neighborhood of 2 things…a monopoly of restaunta is a good thing .. and the 2nd thing, that their food is any good. Looking at you Lincoln, chicken wings are supposed to be crispy.

    How can this be s monopoly? Is anyone bring denied the opportunity to open a business? Market studies must show other types of businesses won’t make it or people would be opening them.

    Of course someone doesn’t know the meaning of monopoly.. Maureen has an IQ of 40.
