In the ever changing landscape of the South Boston restaurant scene, here’ the latest and greatest scoop on what’s opening, closing and more!

Goodbye Nick’s! It is with heavy hearts that we announce, that a Southie staple (and in business for over 40 years) Nick’s House of Pizza and Seafood on West Broadway has closed its doors.  Broadway’s Best has hung its awning at 476 East Broadway and evidently is moving its business from its current location at 321 West Broadway.

The much anticipated Publico is now officially open to great reviews.  The new Southie hot spot is located at 11 Dorchester Street and will feature globally inspired food, creative craft cocktails and an interior that is mid-century meets rustic.  The menu features snacks like empanadas, tacos, and bacaliao fritters, pizzettas, small sharable plates of steamed mussels, ceviche, and larger plates like steak frites, bolognese and mahi mahi!  Publico also features craft beer and an eclectic wine list.  Check out the menu here!  

It’s been confirmed the the good people behind Loco Taqueria is opening up a new spot on Dorchester Street in the old Salsa’s Mexican Restaurant.  We hear from a reliable source it may be a sushi spot!   If it’s anything like Loco – it’s sure to be packed!

Vegans rejoice!  Chloe is now open.  This plant-based, fast casual restaurant brand has achieved a cult following in New York City and Los Angeles, and will open its first location in Massachusetts in the Seaport. The menu features whole ingredients, made fresh and in-house daily, showcasing creative and delicious dishes that challenge the misconception of traditional vegan fare.  The all-day menu offers a diverse selection of salads, seasonal soups, grab + go items, house-made burgers and sandwiches, pastas, freshly baked sweets, cold-press juices, dairy free ice cream (Chill by CHLOE.), and more.

If you like Indian food, you’ll love this news.  Takeaway Grill is open in the Seaport District!  Known for its great flavors and healthy options, Tikkaway Grill is a build-it-yourself concept serving healthy, Indian-inspired food. Founded by Gopi Nair, its location within 101 Seaport is an expansion of the popular New England brand, which has a location in New Haven, Connecticut. Whether vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free, there is something for everyone at the fast-casual concept. From a variety of fillings and six different signature sauces to fresh sautéed and cold vegetables, guests can mix and match ingredients to fill a rice bowl, salad bowl, or a whole-wheat Roti wrap.

Southie hot spot alert! The Lounge at Capo is now officially open and based not he crowds, its crazy popular.  This hip and happening hot spot features a retro vibe – you’ll feel like your in your grandparents’ (or parents’ basement) with wood paneling, kitchy artwork, and cozy and lively atmosphere.  The lounge will feature live music Thursday – Sunday evenings, a limited menu and craft cocktails.  And we hear there will even be a Bingo night in the works – but a really, really, cool Bingo night!

        Hi there! I think there is a bit of confusion! Nick’s used to be at 467 West Broadway. They are closing. Broadway’s best that used to be at 321 West Broadway is now moving into Nick’s old location.
