Those of you who know me know that I love to eat and that I love to try new restaurants. And it seems that there are a handful of restaurants opening soon. Jean Georges place at the W, the restaurant that's replacing Bonfire (which I'm going to write about next) and also Littlenecks Bar & Grille which opens today!
Chef Tony DeRienzo, the owner and Executive Chef of Waterfront Grille on New Bedford Harbor, will open the doors to his new restaurant in South Weymouth at 4:30pm on Thursday, October 22nd. Littlenecks Bar & Grill is located at 1073 Main Street (Route 18), along “Medical Mile,” in the space formerly inhabited by Acapulco’s Restaurant.
Littlenecks Bar & Grill is a casual atmosphere with a contemporary twist. The restaurant boasts an immense lounge area—seating 35 at the bar, and another 40 in the bar area—surrounded by seventeen high-definition plasma screen TVs and a large projection screen. The dining room overlooking the open kitchen allots seating for 150. The main focal point of the restaurant is the 8-seat Expedition Sushi Bar which separates the bar area from the dining room. At the sushi bar, guests watch as a chef hand-prepares creations a mere one-foot away from them.
I'm typically a downtown dining kind of guy (I just had to googlemap Weymouth to see where it is). But that's not to say I won't leave my comfort zone now and again to try something new. I think the furthest south I've been is to eat in Quincy. Actually, I take that back, I did eat at the Taco Bell in Brockton once. Perhaps it's time for a field trip.
