Bolton Street Tavern Opens
Family-style dining comes to Bolton Street.
The community has already begun to embrace the Bolton Street Tavern which began a soft opening on Monday.
“They’ve been very supportive. They want us to do well. So that is really a very good feeling,” said Manager Peter Moynihan of the new restaurant at 587 Bolton Street.
A soft opening allows a restaurant to get everything up and running in preparation for a grand opening. All the items besides pizza are on the menu and the restaurant's take out service is being delayed until the grand opening, said Moynihan.
“We’re trying to take care of the people in the restaurant first,” he said explaining that customers have been very understanding as the restaurant works up to its full potential. "99% of them have been very understanding and very patient about how new we are.”

The Bolton Street Tavern is in the former Picadilly Pub building which had been vacant for over a year. People are happy to have a restaurant back at the location, said Moynihan.
“They’re quite enthusiastic," he said. "They want us to do really well.”
The restaurant is owned by John and Sharon Stounaras who also own and operate the Morse Tavern in Natick. The family-style dining at the Bolton Street Tavern is based closely on their other restaurant although it will feature more seafood to fit the water side location.
Outdoor seating is planned for the location, although the design has yet to be finalized, said Moynihan.
The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to midnight and has a full service bar. The phone number for the restaurant that can seat roughly 220 is (508) 485-4416.
