The Arsenal on the Charles will have a new restaurant with an outdoor eating space, after the Planning Board approved a plan by owners of the complex – athenahealth.
The restaurant is described as a beer garden and will go in the space formerly occupied by Watertown Savings Bank, on the back end of Building 312, Todd Morey of Beals Associates told the Planning Board. The building is also home to Panera Bread and Arsenal Center for the Arts.
The space is 2,800 square feet, plus a 4,500-square-foot outdoor patio space.
Morey said the name of the restaurant has not been revealed, yet.
“They have selected operator, who we agreed would remain anonymous,” Morey said.
The restaurant operators have run “some of Boston’s favorite restaurants” for over 20 years, Morey said reading a statement from the operators. The name of the restaurant operators could be revealed as soon as early March, he said.
The building is historic, and none of the exterior will be altered, Morey said.
For the first year, the restaurant will be open Monday through Saturday. The limitation to six days of liquor service is typical for new liquor licenses, Morey said.
