The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans by the owners of American Provisions at East Broadway and I Street to add a restaurant that will focus on locally-sourced food - just like their store.
Unlike all of the newer restaurants along Broadway, Andy Faddous and Matthew Thayer's sit-down restaurant will be small and intimate, with just 28 seats - and no TVs - their attorney, Marc LaCasse, told the board. He added they are currently looking to buy a wine and beer license.
"It's something decidedly different for South Boston," LaCasse said.
"It will be a non-noisy, quiet restaurant for people like us," the salt-and-pepper bearded LaCasse joked.
Nobody spoke in opposition to the restaurant.
