A new restaurant bearing some British-inspired treats opens this week in Back Bay. Cornish Pasty Co., a Southwestern-based restaurant concept, is ready to make its debut in the former Boston Indian Kitchen space at 51 Massachusetts Ave., an employee reached at the restaurant confirmed Tuesday.
Cornish Pasty Co. first opened in 2005 and specializes in pasties — hand pies with a meat or vegetable filling that is wrapped in pastry dough. There are existing locations in Arizona and Las Vegas, but the forthcoming spot in Back Bay will be the first East Coast location for the company.
Aside from pasties, Cornish Pasty Co. serves sides, salads, and soups. Fillings for the pasties include everything from balsamic portobello mushrooms and bangers and mash to pepperoni, salami, pork, meatballs, and lamb.
The buildout of the space has been ongoing since the project was announced in May, as previously reported, and the final product will be unveiled on October 13. The restaurant is also currently hiring employees, according to a post on Craigslist.
