A beloved Newton restaurant that shut down in July after nearly 30 years in business officially reopened over the weekend under new ownership. Union Street Restaurant is back in action, per a post on Facebook, with some new renovations to boot.
The new owners —Derek Brady, Raji Pine, Teddy Connolly, and Tom Griffin — took over after the restaurant closed on July 19, as the Boston Globe reported, and reportedly want to build off its history in the community by serving as a gathering place for the neighborhood. Griffin told the Globe they plan to have some games (including ping pong) and will put Union Street’s patio to good use for events and functions, and possibly a raw bar.
The restaurant has a full liquor license, and it is in the process of updating its website; for now, consult Facebook for any news from the restaurant. Union Street is open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.
