The new Savin Bar + Kitchen is now opening its doors, replacing the old C.F. Donovan’s near the Savin Hill T stop.
We wish them good fortune and a lot of luck, considering the fate of previous establishments at the site. The previous owner shuttered C.F. Donovan’s in 2009 and declared bankruptcy. A long-ago owner, when the joint was called the Bulldog, was gunned down in the ’70s. James “Whitey” Bulger was somehow involved. Enough said.
Neighbors appear happy with the reopening, so that’s a good sign.
