Q&A With Evan Deluty: 29 Sudbury on Tap to Open This Month

The bar at 29 Sudbury
Evan Deluty, chef and owner of Stella, is about to open his second restaurant this month (or the beginning of August at the latest). 29 Sudbury will feature modern American cuisine with some Italian influences, and is located at 29 Hudson Road in the colonial suburb its named after. We caught up with Deluty to get the deets.

Zagat: Tell us about the restaurant. What’s the cuisine going to be like?
ED: It’s kind of modern American with Italian influences. The raw bar will be a significant part of the menu - all local seafood, crustaceans and mollusks. We have a coal-burning oven for pizzas. We’re doing more American-style pizzas using great toppings and farm-to-table local ingredients. We’ll have a few items from Stella’s menu like the Bolognese, “Sicillano” swordfish, pork Milanese and some apps too. Entrees will be $30 and under, so $18-$28.

Zagat: What’s the bar program?
ED: We have a full liquor license, so we’ll have about 15-18 signature cocktails and about 25 wines by the glass, 100 bottles of wine and locally-sourced beer.

Zagat: Tell us about the interior.
ED: We’ve gutted the space to the studs and put in hardwood floors. On the main floor we have a massive rectangle bar, which seats about 40, with lounge seating and high-tops. Then there’s the main dining room seating 70, with an open kitchen, separated by a partial dividing wall. There are banquettes, distressed wood tabletops and no tablecloths. Upstairs there’s a dining room with a bar, and a private room off the side that’s kind of curtained off. We have an outside deck on the second level, too, which seats about 25. We’ll have a front patio that seats about 30.

Zagat: What about decor?
ED: We want to pay homage to Sudbury, so it’s funky Colonial. Gray, cream and beiges. Distressed wood.

Zagat: And the hours?
ED: Dinner to start, but we’re definitely going to do brunch on Sundays, and more likely lunch once we perfect what we’re doing.
