A South Boston gastropub that temporarily closed in late January after suffering water damage reopened its doors yesterday, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Local 149 made its grand return with a refurbished dining room, new bar stools, and some new artwork, which was revealed on the restaurant's Facebook page.
Henry Pariseau, the chief operating officer of the restaurant's management company, the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, previously told Eater the restaurant had to be dried and dehumidified after a pipe burst during some construction above Local 149.
The restaurant first opened in 2011, serving contemporary American cuisine, cocktails, and beer. The menu features bar snacks like pigs in a blanket and deviled eggs, as well as sandwiches, pizza, pasta dishes, and assorted entrees.
Local 149 is open Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Its sister restaurant Article 24 is getting ready to open in Brighton.
Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate! We couldn't have asked for a better reopening! pic.twitter.com/zZ2wlG0yQe— Local 149 (@Local_149) April 6, 2016
