Cut and Sew Is Proposed for Historic Windsor Button Store in Downtown Crossing

The new venture has ties to at least one other local restaurant and lounge.

A landmark building at Downtown Crossing could get a new restaurant, Boston Restaurant Talk reports via @CappyinBoston. In a post on his Downtown Crossing news site, Cappy notes the new eatery is currently dubbed Cut and Sew as an homage to its predecessor, the Windsor Button shop, which occupied the space for 77 years before shutting down in 2013.

Located at 35 Temple Place, BRT notes the site was slated for a downtown branch of Alpine Restaurant Group's The Painted Burro. That project was abandoned last year.

Cappy says partners from 617 Productions and from The Living Room are involved in Cut and Sew. There's no other information about the new concept at the moment. Last year, The Living Room launched the appropriately-named Dining Room, which offers internationally-inspired comfort food.

CORRECTION: "The Living Room and 617 productions have no affiliation and neither corporation is collaborating on a project," the Living Room tells Eater.
