Proprietor of Nantucket’s popular “neo-global” bistro and sushi bar, Lola 41, to open first off-island Massachusetts
concept, marking latest addition to waterfront neighborhood’s portfolio of local and national restaurants
Boston, MA – Adding to the wide array of luxury retail and restaurant concepts at Fan Pier, The Fallon Company today announced the addition of Lola 42 – sister restaurant to Nantucket’s critically-acclaimed bistro and sushi bar, Lola 41 – marking the very first off-island Massachusetts outpost for proprietor Marco Coelho, and the latest addition the vibrant, mixed-use community’s roster of world-class, high-end service offerings.
Lola 42 will occupy approximately 3,700 square feet of space on the ground level of Twenty Two Liberty, Fan Pier’s first ultra-luxury residential building, and is anticipated to open in spring of 2017. Terms of the deal, which was brokered by CBRE/New England Retail, were not disclosed.
“Lola 42 is a great addition to Fan Pier’s top tier retail and restaurant offerings and is exactly the type of concept that will resonate with residents of Twenty Two Liberty,” said Joe Fallon, President & CEO of The Fallon Company. “It also fits with our overall mix at Fan Pier, where retail and hospitality complements our growing residential community, robust commerce environment, and green space at our unparalleled waterfront location.”
Lola 42 will be the first off-island, in-state venture for restaurateur Marco Coelho, proprietor of Nantuckets’ Lola 41 and its casual spin-off Lola Burger. Like Lola 41, Lola 42 will be a neo-global bistro and sushi bar, offering cuisine inspired from the 42nd parallel across the globe, including the Mediterranean and Japan. Coelho also owns Sails American Bar & Grille in Rowayton, Connecticut.
“We’re excited to bring our award-winning bistro and sushi bar concept to the mainland, and our new location on Boston’s Fan Pier couldn’t be more optimal,” said Coelho. “Surrounded by water, juxtaposed against the cityscape, Lola 42 will offer Bostonians the upscale dining experience they’ve come to expect through our original concept, with a more cosmopolitan twist befitting of our entree into the thriving Boston restaurant scene.”
The Fallon Company recently announced the addition of several other service, fine-dining and fast-casual concepts to the growing neighborhood, including Mastro’s Ocean Club, the iconic seafood restaurant; Boston-based specialty grocer Frank Anthony’s Gourmet Market; Sorelle, the popular Boston-based bakery café chain; and Laura LeDuc Fitness, one of the premier fitness trainers in the city of Boston, who will offer Fan Pier residents and employees an array of classes and training programs. Longtime Fan Pier favorite Salon Mario Russo will also return to the neighborhood in a new, prime location.
Fan Pier is also home to a host of established local and national retail and hospitality ventures including Mario Batali’s Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca; Committee; Empire Asian Restaurant & Lounge; Strega Waterfront; B.Good; Leader Bank; and Starbucks Coffee Company.
Fan Pier’s hospitality, service and retail community caters to the waterfront neighborhood at large, including the several thousand employees that work in the neighborhood’s four completed commercial towers, as well as the growing residential community comprised of residents of The Fallon Company’s recently-opened Twenty Two Liberty, as well as future residents of Fan Pier’s second luxury residential building, Fifty Liberty, which will open in early 2018.
When complete, Fan Pier will feature a total of eight contemporary commercial and residential luxury high rises; the best in dining, shopping and recreation; and myriad green spaces against the backdrop of Boston Harbor. Set in a convenient location connected to Boston’s Central Business District, Fan Pier offers easy access to public transportation, including South Station, a water taxi dock, Hubway bikes onsite, and sits nearby several interstate highway exchanges. Those who live, work or simply visit Fan Pier also enjoy access to Fan Pier Park, the Fan Pier Public Green, Fan Pier’s world-class, six-acre marina, and the 38 mile Boston HarborWalk. Other conveniences include close proximity to Logan International Airport and some of Boston’s premier arts and cultural attractions, such as the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), which is part of the Fan Pier community.
