With the landscape of Southie ever-changing, we here are Caught in Southie pride ourselves on relaying information to you as soon as we know it – especially when it comes to new businesses.  So here’s the scoop!

Rumor has it that a local celebrity chef will be opening a new restaurant at the corner of A and Melcher Street – the former home of A Street Diner.  Renovations are expected to start soon with a fall opening in the works. 

We also hear that Foodies will finally open! The local grocery and specialty shop currently under renovations on West Broadway (between C and D) has high hopes of opening mid-August. 

Wolfie’s plans on opening its door once again.  Wolfie himself said the restaurant will open the week of June 18th with a new chef and some new energy! 

Just in case you missed it:
The former home of the Boathouse on L Street is being transformed into a future hot spot for burgers, hot dogs and ice cream – Tasty Burger!  Part of the Franklin Cafe family, Tasty Burger boasts some amazingly delicious burgers including such creations at the Spicy Jalapeno, Kahuna Burger with pineapple and a special Burger of the Day.   A burger will run you about $5 – not bad!

Tasty Burger hopes to be open for business in a few weeks.

With the Boathouse on L Street a fond memory of ice creams past, Southie residents have been asking, “Where can I get some ice cream in town?”   The little ice cream shop at the corner of Dorchester St. and East Fourth Street once called P.S. Scoops has undergone some renovations and will reopen under a new name sometime in June.   Don’t forget the Jimmies!

    PS Scoops had good ice cream but outrageous prices.  I’m sure that’s why they’re gone.  Hopefully the new place will be more reasonably priced.

    Does anyone else wish there was a restaurant down on the water near M Street Beach? A cool place for some oysters and a couple Harpoons.
