A handful of alumni from Barbara Lynch Gruppo who opened a restaurant in Quincy just last summer already have another new spot in the works. Devin Adams and Garner Blume are part of the group behind the forthcoming Belfry Hall, which is slated to open at 35 Washington St. near Quincy Center.
Belfry Hall received approval from the City of Quincy's licensing commission and could be open by late summer or early fall in the former Home Ice Sports Bar Space. The restaurant will be an "urban beer hall" serving pub-style fare and fresh oysters, according to a rep. Blume, as executive chef, will craft the menu of international pub fare.
Also joining the Belfry Hall team: Josh Suprenant will be at the helm of the beer program, and Palmer Matthews will be in charge of the cocktail program. Expect an all-around accessible menu, including shareable plates, burgers, fried chicken, seafood, and some beer-hall type items like sausages and caramel corn.
The original idea for Belfry Hall came from Townshend bartender Noel O'Connor, who passed away suddenly in January. Now, Adams and his team will move forward with O'Connor's vision to create a neighborhood place for people to enjoy high-quality food, have some drinks, and watch a game.
Belfry Hall will be located just around the corner from The Townshend, which opened last May. The Townshend's menu aims for "modern American tavern" fare, headed by chef Bobby Sisson, also a Barbara Lynch Gruppo alum.
