Pomodoro is operating as a “pop up” restaurant in the Volle Nolle space at 351 Hanover Street until its new digs at 204 Hanover Street are ready.
After losing its lease at 319 Hanover Street, the longstanding Italian restaurant operated by Siobhan Carew recently won city approval for a move to 204 Hanover Street in the space formerly occupied by High Gear Jewelry.
In the meantime, Adam Castiglioni – North End @conceirgeboston Twitter extraordinaire – shares this photo of the window signs at the former Pomodoro location pointing customers to Volle Nolle. Apparently, the pop up has been operating on the down-low for a few weeks in a mystery uncovered by a Chowhound blogger.
The new restaurant at 204 Hanover Street is proposed to have 39 seats, including an 8 seat outside patio that is recessed within the owner’s property line. Inside, a dining counter will face Hanover Street similar to the former Pomodoro at 319 Hanover Street.
Neighborhood groups split on the application which faced vocal opposition from abutter Angela Romano (Romano Florist) but was supported by other neighbors. The North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) opposed the move while the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) voted in favor. Mayor Walsh’s office supported the application easing passage through the zoning board for the necessary variances at a recent hearing.
