Sterling's to Open Late October

Sterling’s, the American slated to open at 60 State Street in Downtown Boston with a stylish nod to Mad Men, has set a date for a late-October opening – if all goes well, according to Travis Talbot, consulting chef and former VP of operations for The Glynn Hospitality Group (Black Rose, Dillon's, Granary Tavern, Jose McIntyre's, Brownstone, Hurricane O'Reilly's, Clery's and Coogan's).

The 1960s-themed restaurant is being built in what used to be a cafeteria on the main floor of the 60 State Street high-rise office building. The 20-ft. ceilings will either remain or include a drop-ceiling feature. The dining room will seat 80 with high-tops, booths and tables, and the bar will lookout over Faneuil Hall. The outdoor patio will seat about 150, says Talbot.

The menu will be circa 1960s with “Julia Child specials,” says Talbot. Steak frites, deviled eggs, lobster Thermidor roll will be part of the offerings. But the price point will be sweet - not much if anything over $22, says Talbot - not unlike the Granary, another Glynn restaurant that recently opened near the Waterfront. Sterling’s will likely be open seven days for breakfast, lunch and dinner but hours are still being determined. They will have a 2 AM liquor license.

Glynn Hospitality Group also owns and operates the legendary Irish bar The Purple Shamrock in Quincy Market. The restaurant is slated to close around September 15.
