Daddy Jones Bar will indeed replace Lil Vinny's Ristorante in Somerville's Magoun Square, and according to a job posting on Craiglist, the new venue hopes to open by "early September." The post describes the upcoming bar as "an intimate cocktail lounge" with "a focus on easy, simple drinks created in new fun ways" and says it will serve "Greek bar food." Though it hasn't opened yet, TV personality Maria Menounos is already plugging it; she cites the bar as her choice hangout in a personal best list in this recent Improper Bostonian interview. Earlier reports suggested that the bar will invoke the 80's and 90's, so perhaps there will be quesadillas and this crazy new stuff called sushi.
