    The Whiskey Priest Closes

    This week's Restaurant Roundup includes the closing of a Seaport bar, a new sandwich shop and a new BBQ spot from a food truck. (Published Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018)

    A Beacon Hill restaurant known in part for its comfort food, extensive wine list, and cocktails is closing, and a new dining and drinking spot will be taking its place.

    According to a licensing commission hearing page within the City of Boston website, Scollay Square on Beacon Street is looking to transfer its license to The Emory, which would open in its space. The manager listed is Emory Kilgore, who has worked at such places as No. 9 Park, Stoddard's, and The Merchant.

    The Legendary Restaurant Group, which is behind Scollay Square, also runs Papagayo, Sip Wine Bar, and Burger Dive; Scollay Square was its first restaurant, opening approximately 14 years ago.

    The address for Scollay Square (and the upcoming Emory) is 21 Beacon Street, Boston, MA, 02108. The website for Scollay Square can be found at
