City Of Boston Reviews Plans To Revive Legendary Doyle's Cafe

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — After it's closing in 2019, plans have been submitted to the city to revive and modernize Doyle’s Cafe in Jamaica Plain.

Watermark Development said the project would bring back the legendary pub on Washington Street, guided by the award-winning Brassica Kitchen and Cafe.

According to Executive Chef and Co-Owner Jeremy Kean, the restaurant will take a unique approach when it comes to food and style.

"It will be our version of what Doyle's was -- which I think you know, some people don't want to hear that," Kean said. "But we don't have any other way of doing it, the menu will be our menu."

Kean added that the kitchen is interested in the "history of what Doyle's was" to the community, and the team is aiming to retain the pub's values of "really tasty food and friendly service."

The potential project would also bring a market and more housing to the area -- in the form of two-dozen condos, four-stories high.

"We just hope that the neighborhood welcomes us over there like they did down the street," Kean said.

If all goes to plan, developers hope to work on the project by 2023, contingent on if the restaurant is able to acquire a liquor license.

Kean said some potential menu items may include classic pub foods -- like pizza and fried chicken.
