Well, it looks like we’re getting a new South Boston waterfront restaurant… starting this week.
According to the official press release:
The New “D” Street Café will officially open on The South Boston Waterfront on July 3, 2008 and be an 80-seat outdoor restaurant serving fun, fresh, casual fare such as: grilled burgers, hot dogs, fresh sandwiches (including lobster rolls), salads and fresh local ice cream, as well as, “Grab-and Go” items for the busy passersby and the ever-growing business demographic flooding into the area.
The restaurant will be a seasonal venture operating each year from: May – October and hours of operation will be: Monday – Wednesday, Friday, Saturday: 11:00am to 7:00pm, Thursday: 11:00am to 9:00pm. Extended hours on Thursday are set for special live music acts ranging from Jazz, Latin, Reggae and other world music. On the days that live music will not be featured a DJ from New York has been commissioned to prep a virtual soundtrack for daily operations.
“This is going to be the kind of place I think families will want to stop in and grab great food, listen to wonderful music and enjoy the beautiful park that the City of Boston and Massport has worked so hard to develop. I hope this will not only be an addition to the waterfront, but a welcome mat to other businesses to join us and truly develop this area into one of Boston’s best new areas!” said Darryl Settles.
Darryl Settles is a restaurateur, real estate developer and the founder of the Beantown Jazz Festival. A few weeks ago he was hanging out around the South Boston Waterfront — when he got this crazy idea that the area needed a restaurant just like the D Street Cafe. Five weeks later (like I said, crazy), a new restaurant is born.
The D Street Cafe is located at 600 D Street on South Boston’s Maritime Park on the Waterfront.
