A restaurant situated on prime real estate in Boston’s Seaport closed down earlier this month, and yet another large development project could take its place. Atlantic Beer Garden (146 Seaport Blvd.) had its last day on October 8, as Boston Restaurant Talk reports, after nearly 10 years in business.
The restaurant first opened in 2008, but word surfaced towards the end of 2015 that a new residential development project was planned for the site of the restaurant and its neighbor at 150 Seaport Blvd., The Whiskey Priest. The Cronin Group is the developer behind the project, which will include 22 floors of residences, retail space, and underground parking. The Cronin Group also manages several restaurants in the Boston area — including both Atlantic Beer Garden and the Whiskey Priest.
A recent post on Atlantic Beer Garden’s Facebook page reflected on the restaurant’s years in business:
We have been here for many years and enjoyed making great memories with all of you. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff who worked with us and helped make this place like a home away from home. We'd also like to thank all our customers for their patronage over the years.
Eater has reached out to the Cronin Group for more details on a closing timeline for the Whiskey Priest and when the group will break ground on the new development.
