Early February has been the targeted opening timeframe for Townsman for awhile, and now early February is here. "Soon enough," promises a tweet from last night, and training is underway. Plus, multiple tipsters have reported a good sign: the paper recently came off the windows. Look inside, and you'll see lots of red wooden chairs.
Also: "white subway tile, Parisian wallpaper, recycled paper lights, cement floors, and handmade walnut tables," according to a new article in The Improper Bostonian, which notes that the space will seat 100. There may even be a "remote bar" on the Greenway patio come spring for those who want to drink "seasonal and local cocktails" from Citizen Public House alum Sean Frederick outdoors.
As previously reported, the restaurant will be a "New England-style brasserie" with "shellfish towers," "inventive crudo," and charcuterie made in-house (here's the shiny "meat assasin.") There will also be plenty of whole animal butchery. "We're no stranger to the swine," chef/owner Matt Jennings told The Improper.
Townsman is located in the new Radian building at 120 Kingston Street, right on the Greenway.
