A few months ago, we reported that the person behind a North End restaurant and cocktail bar was going to be taking over a nearby mainstay for Italian-American food. Now we have learned that these aren't his only plans.
Eater Boston states (via The Improper Bostonian) that Nick Frattaroli, who owns Ward 8 on N Washington Street, plans to open a Mexican dining spot in the space on Canal Street where The Grand Canal had been until closing last summer. This was announced as Frattaroli is getting ready to open North Square Oyster in the Gennaro's Five North Square space in the North End, with that spot hoping to open sometime this month. Little information has been given on the proposed Mexican restaurant, so stay tuned for details.
The address for the Mexican restaurant planned for the old Grand Canal space is 57 Canal Street, Boston, MA, 02114.
