More than three years after ownership of a restaurant near Symphony Hall changed hands, a new concept will finally make its debut in the vacant space. The Westland, taking its name from its 10 Westland Ave. address where Symphony 8 operated until 2013, will open soon with a selection of tavern-style dishes, beer, and more according to Boston Magazine.
Owner Douglas Bacon purchased the space following the closure of Symphony 8 and worked to renovate it over the last several years, as previously reported. Bacon also owns a series of bars and restaurants in Allston-Brighton, including White Horse Tavern, Harry’s Bar & Grill, The Avenue, and Hopewell Kitchen & Bar. The Westland will serve a mixture of seafood, pizza, burgers, steak, and assorted “classic American tavern” dishes, according to the website, along with cocktails, beer, and other beverages.
