Sunny Boy, the new venture from BiNA Hospitality (jm Curley, Merrill & Co.), quietly opened over the weekend at 1632 Beacon St. in Washington Square. While Sunny Boy will eventually open early and close late, a restaurant representative said that to start, it is offering just breakfast and lunch options from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. (2 p.m. on the weekends). The team plans to extend into dinner hours in the near future. The brunch crowd can rest assured that the full bar is available now.
In addition to 49 seats for dine-in customers, there is a grab-and-go case offering house-made sandwiches and salads. With a baker on staff, all the breads are made fresh daily, which set the stage for breakfast sandwiches and lunchtime clubs. Other menu items, like potato chips, are also made in-house. Cold-brewed iced coffee is served on tap.
Last month, co-owner Andrew Cartin told the Brookline TAB that the restaurant was meant to be a neighborhood spot, providing the Washington Square area with what it needs. In addition to three square meals a day, that will eventually include late-night options targeting an industry crowd, the rep said.
