A new Italian restaurant is planned for the Watch Factory in Waltham in a space that sits along the scenic Charles River. The new eatery will serve Italian cuisine that will also feature a cafe with pastries and gelato. Both sit down and take out service will be offered. The restaurant will contain approximately 80 seats, 30 of which will be on the already built outside deck that is feet away from the Charles River. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The recently renovated Watch Factory contains hundreds of loft style residences and over 150,000 square feet of office space. Original project plans contained two spaces for a full service restaurant and a separate smaller sandwich/cafe, both located on the North end of the building closest to Prospect Street. While both office and residential tenants have occupied the Watch Factory for a number of years, the restaurant space has remained vacant. Permits are in the process of being granted for the interior build out. No opening date is known at this time.
