The Townshend, a modern tavern coming to Quincy, plans to open this weekend, according to the Boston Herald. As previously reported, The Townshend was anticipating a spring debut.
The restaurant will be at 1250 Hancock St., part of the mixed-use Presidents Place development and right across from the Quincy Center MBTA station. The Herald notes there's a lot of history on that block: The Townshend will be next door to the Church of Presidents, where presidents John Quincy and John Quincy Adams, and their first ladies Abigail Adams and Louisa Catherine Adams, are all laid to rest.
There hasn't been much said on what to expect in terms of "modern tavern" fare, but the team has shared some of its progress on the bar on Facebook. There's potential for frozen confections, as well. The Townshend is owned by Devin Adams, and Bobby Sisson will be head chef, according to the Herald; both men have local industry cred, having worked with big-name, local restaurateurs Barbara Lynch and Garrett Harker.
