There’s Room for a Burger King in East Boston

In the past few years, Tony’s Realty has been excited to see the successful development of many new, independently owned restaurants in East Boston. Among our favorites are Scup’s, Angelas’ Cafe, Off the Boat, Dough, the 303 Cafe, and Ecco. East Boston continues its tradition of welcoming new entrepreneurs to the restaurant business and allowing them to flourish in the neighborhood.

At the same time, Tony’s Realty is not opposed to the development of a new Burger King as our neighbor in Maverick Square. Denying a businessperson the opportunity to develop a restaurant in an area zoned for a commercial restaurant is morally and ethically questionable. The development of a Burger King poses no threat to the development of individually and independently owned restaurants in our neighborhood, and its presence is perfectly legal. The “cause” to deny a Burger King in Maverick Square is, instead, a shameful snub to its owner, a small businessman, and its potential patrons.

Many well-established cities and neighborhoods in the United States and the world have Burger Kings—New York City’s Fifth Avenue, Miami Beach, Boston’s Copley Square, and even Venice, Italy. As a new and hopeful America, our energy can be better spent improving our neighborhood in creative ways, instead of trying to destroy the development of a legitimate business.

Ecco Brings New Taste to East Boston Fare

When a neighborhood evolves into a pleasant, safe, friendly, urban village, it is often the result of having affordable and enjoyable eating spots nearby. East Boston, over the last year, has seen a series of wonderful establishments pop up in the neighborhood to complement many of the great neighborhood institutions already here.

With a great selection of food and drinks, Ecco is a new arrival that offers opportunities to bump in to old and new friends, long time residents, former East Bostonians, and new homeowners, too. It truly draws a customer base from across the spectrum for food and drinks in an elegant setting.

East Boston has seen some great establishments open in the past year. Angela’s Café on Lexington Street has wonderful, authentic Mexican cuisine. The 303 Café has an amazing weekend brunch, and full menu. Scup’s, at the Marginal Street marina, offers incredible food in a unique and pleasant waterfront setting. D’Parma’s brings a full Italian menu with a full bar to Maverick Square. Saigon Restaurant is under new ownership and brings in a taste of Pho cuisine to East Boston. And, Off the Boat has expanded its location into a full dining room with truly authentic Italian seafood dishes.

And let’s not forget some of our neighborhood’s classic favorites that have been giving us great fare for decades including Kelley’s Pub, Rino’s, Donna’s, and Santarpio’s Pizza, all of which have paved the way for East Boston to be a great destination for food & drinks.
