The Spring Stroll has become another South Boston tradition. It is centered upon the merchants, enterprises and purveyors of refreshments along Broadway. But as you’ll recall, South Boston Online focused the lead article in our April 7 issue on residential developments along West Broadway. Well, the rapid development of shops and businesses along West Broadway is equally astonishing, so we are focusing on that in this issue.
New businesses range from the South Boston Arts Association’s (the SBAA’s) charming new “Around the Corner” Gallery to a major opening last Thursday: the Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation. Check out their “core values” prominently displayed just inside their door. The SBAA Gallery is just around the corner from Neatly Nested, a design and furnishings shop that has become a signal success here. It’s at the corner of E and West Broadway; just ask for Danielle when you stop in.
An increasing number of dining anddrinking establishments now adorn West Broadway – appetizers at Fromage (or a final cup of coffee as a digestif), divine pasta at Capo, and a very colorful dessert course at Miam Miam Macaronerie. And the Certified Meatball Company, courtesy of Boston Nightlife Ventures, is on its way sometime this summer. And please note the French atmosphere that is developing at certain points along West Broadway.
Elegant clothing – for all tastes and of all kinds – is increasingly available at places like Jill and Jamie’s Pretty Reckless on Broadway at Perkins Square or Covet, Hanadi Hamzeh’s eclectic consignment shop between E and F Streets on West Broadway. And South Boston Online has heard that DewLuxe on A Street will be relocating to a retail space on West Broadway, also between E and F Streets. Stay tuned.
