Several months ago, we reported that a South Shore restaurant and bar could be shutting down to make way for new development. Now we have learned that this will indeed be the case.
According to a Facebook post from the place, the Main Street Grille in South Weymouth is slated to shut down on December 30, as co-owner Chris DiMambro mentions that a new apartment building will be constructed at the site which will include 153 residential units along with 7,000 square feet of retail space (possibly including a restaurant). The post says that a final farewell party for the dining and drinking spot will take place on December 28 and December 29, with festivities starting at 6:00 PM each night.
The Main Street Grille, which opened approximately 15 years ago, is a neighborhood tavern that offers mostly pub grub and classic American fare along with beer, wine, and cocktails.
The address for the Main Street Grille is 1400 Main Street, Weymouth, MA, 02190.
December 30 update: A new Facebook post indicates that the Main Street Grille did not close today after all, as the new project for the site has been delayed, allowing the dining and drinking spot to stay open through "the first quarter of 2019." The post does say that the place will have to be shuttered for a couple of weeks this month while it gets its licenses renewed.
