Then I heard that Shea's will be taking over Midtown Eat's restaurant space, opening a new restaurant, and the new kitchen wil serve both Shea's and the new restaurant.

Look for a new project coming to this corner of Stewart and Sinclair, on the border between Downtown, Midtown and the Wells Avenue Conservation district. I don't know much about the project yet, other than it will comprise of the empty lot next to the green Victorian, the space between the green Victorian and the smaller home on Sinclair, and then the small green home on Sinclair as well. It will be residential., and it's not a Marmot project.11 Mar 2015
