Seafood and steak chain Eddie V’s is aiming to take over the former P.F. Chang’s space at the Prudential Center in Boston’s Back Bay, Boston Restaurant Talk reports. Per a public notice on the Boston Licensing Board’s website, the defunct P.F. Chang’s has petitioned the city to transfer its common victualler license to Eddie V’s, and the hearing is scheduled to take place next Wednesday, December 6, at 10 a.m. at City Hall.
The space has been vacant since March 2017, when P.F. Chang’s shuttered. (2017 has been a bad year for P.F. Chang’s in Great Boston.) According to menus available on the restaurant chain’s website, Eddie V’s offers a wide variety of seafood and steaks, as well as an extensive raw bar including oysters from both coasts, other chilled shellfish such as king crab legs and shrimp, and a selection of caviars.
Eddie V’s currently has 18 locations (none in New England). The first opened in Austin in 2000, which is where its operations were based before the company was purchased by Orlando-based Darden Restaurants, which is also behind Olive Garden, the Capital Grille, and more. Eater has reached out to Eddie V’s management and will update this story as new information becomes available.
