It's been nearly a year since word of Coppersmith (or Coppersmith Hall, as it has also been called, or Coppersmith 1894, which it now appears to be called) first appeared. Recently, the South Boston restaurant-to-be began developing an online presence (website, Facebook, Twitter), and all channels now point to spring 2015 as the target opening date.
The early reports indicated that the nearly-250-seat "affordable" restaurant would include a bar, an outdoor patio, a rooftop garden, "farm-to-table" comfort food, and two food trucks inside the actual space, "supplement[ing] the main menu and provid[ing] space for cooking competitions and other events."
A video posted back in May shared a few more details, from "family-style recipes" to "exposed brick." The aforementioned food trucks will actually be bolted to the wall, and in addition to cooking competitions, they could also be used for demonstrations and nutrition education, according to the video. Also, through a program called Coppersmith Works, young adults will have a chance to take their first steps in the hospitality industry by working at the restaurant.
Coppersmith's Facebook page promises "a spacious, welcoming, and vibrant restaurant," which will also include a coffee shop, and the cuisine will be "hand-crafted rustic comfort food."
