Seaport is getting a new steak house.
Waterside desperately needs the 1/4 mile barriers to come down. That side of the street has become a dead zone with construction.
Actually, the scaffolding went up in late 2017 as I recall and the renovation has been continuous since then, you've always been able to see workers working behind the canvas wrap--they demolished the old B&N marquee and did a ton more over the preceding two years. Have you been away from Downtown Crossing for a while? <sincere question, not being sarcastic>The are finally working on the old Barnes and Noble space in Downtown Crossing.
Hm... well, now that you've clarified like that--perhaps you're right! I just took it as a given that as soon as the scaffolding went up in late 2017, there was continuous work happening, even if the intensity may have been fluctuating...
I loved Hillstone so much. It was sunken but that gave you a great view on the plaza, let you feel a bit removed form the chaos but still able to see it. And as chains go, the food was good while not insanely priced and the service was phenomenal. There is nothing like that in the area any more while a noisy beer place is well represented.^Say what you want about Sam Adams/Boston Beer, but this has the potential to be a pretty neat space. Far better than the sunken, cavern-like Hillstone.
