Last year, we reported that a new restaurant may move into the South Shore space where a bar and a pizza place had been until being demolished after a fire. Now we have learned a bit more about the place.
According to a job post within the Craigslist site, Bates Bar and Grill is planning to open on the Braintree side of Weymouth Landing, with the address given indicating that it will take over the Commercial Street space where The Landing Pub was, and based on the earlier article, possibly the Ultimate Pizza space as well. The post mentions that Bates Bar and Grill will be a casual neighborhood pub that will offer sandwiches, gourmet burgers, pub-style pizza, craft beer, wine, cocktails, and more, and while the earlier report had mentioned that the upcoming spot could have seating for 95 and an outdoor area, it is not known if this is still the case.
In March of 2015, both The Landing Pub and Ultimate Pizza were hit by a fire, with the structure subsequently being taken down; before the fire occurred, the Sarras family had mentioned that it actually had plans to demolish the building and open a restaurant in the space.
The address given for Bates Bar and Grill is 2 Commercial Street (which is where The Landing Pub was), while Ultimate Pizza had been at 6 Commercial Street.
