A fixture of stability during a devastating fire in the 1970s will become a new kind of neighborhood element, according to the Chelsea Reporter. Mark Nadow and Michael Sheridan have leased the old Chelsea fire station on Everett Avenue and will turn the space into a restaurant.
Nadow — a Chelsea resident, business owner, and Mystic Brewery investor — teamed up with Sheridan, who took over running the Ironsides Bar & Grill in Charlestown in the early 2000s and has since managed Croma, Wink & Nod, and more. Sheridan will oversee the food side of things, while Nadow takes command of the business as CEO and president, the Reporter wrote.
The pair has an application in to the Chelsea licensing board for an all alcohol restaurant license this month and are reportedly aiming to open Chelsea Station Restaurant and Lounge as soon as possible. The restaurant will serve American bistro cuisine and brunch, and will seat 120.
Nadow told the Reporter he saw this as an opportunity to expand dining options for Chelsea residents. Ciao! Pizza & Pasta also recently moved into the neighborhood.
