It looks like a new restaurant and bar may be on its way to an historic block in Boston--and the owners of an adjacent dining and drinking spot appear to be behind it.
According to a source, The White Bull is looking to open in the former Panera space on Union Street near Haymarket Square and Faneuil Hall in an area known as the Blackstone Block. A check on a licensing board hearing page confirms this, with the notice saying that the proposed place is seeking the license of The Briar Rose, a Hyde Park pub that closed a bit more than a year ago. The manager listed for The White Bull is Jeffrey Baird, who is also one of the owners of the Blackstone Grill next door, and a sign had actually been up for awhile at the site mentioning the Blackstone's name, though no other information was given at the time.
The address for this proposed restaurant and bar in Boston is: The White Bull, 1 Union Street, Boston, MA, 02108.
