    A couple of years ago, we reported that the people behind a highly-rated pizza and pasta spot were going to open a market and a lounge nearby. Now we have learned that the lounge has finally opened, joining both the pizza and pasta place and the now-open market.

    According to an article from Boston Magazine, the Winnisimmet Cocktail Lounge is now open in Chelsea, taking over the space where Parrotta's Alpine Lodge had once been. As mentioned earlier, Edson Coimbra and Marvin Posada of Ciao! Pizza & Pasta and Ciao! Market are behind the new dining and drinking establishment, which features food items with Italian influences as well as beer, wine, and cocktails, and while it is only open for dinner right now (and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays), a weekend brunch will be coming at some point.

    Ciao! Pizza & Pasta first opened on Williams Street in the fall of 2015, offering wood-fired pizza, freshly-made pasta dishes, panini, salads, and desserts, while Ciao! Market opened on Broadway in the summer of 2017.

    The address for this new restaurant and bar in Chelsea is: Winnisimmet Cocktail Lounge, 73 Winnisimmet Street, Chelsea, MA, 02150. Its website can be found at
