North End Oyster Plans on Salem Street Supported by Neighborhood Groups

Described as “Neptune Oyster on steroids”, North End Oyster is making plans to open at 74-76 Salem Street in the location currently occupied by Urban Cantina. The N.E.O. application was presented this week to the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) and North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) by Manager David Dellenbaugh and Attorney Daniel Toscano.

The premises are being purchased by Nicholas Fiorillo from Crudo, the Japanese fusion restaurant located next door on Salem Street. Fiorillo has applied to transfer the existing CV 7-day malt & wine with cordials license from the Urban Cantina to North End Oyster. A hearing is set at the Boston Licensing Board for May 4th.

Located across the street from the successful destination restaurant Neptune Oyster, the new upscale seafood establishment will have approximately 76 seats over 1,700 square feet of space, including the lower level. The street level has 34 seats including a dining bar. The floor plan is expected to change and Attorney Toscano said he would follow up with the council at a later time.

NEWNC voted 9-0 in support of the license transfer. View the above video for the Neighborhood Council presentation and discussion.

NEWRA also voted 27-4 “not to oppose” the license transfer. View the below video for the presentation and discussion at NEWRA.
