At their Sept. 8 meeting, Selectmen heard from representatives of BGP Tavern, LLC, requesting an alcohol license for a soon-to-be restaurant at 300 Lowell St.

BGP Tavern, LLC owns and operates Burtons Grill, but the Lowell Street location would feature "Red Heat Tavern," a new restaurant. 

Burtons CEO Kevin Harron said the restaurant was on track for a March 2014 opening, and would be a new and exciting venture.

"I think what we will intend to do is not bring you what all the other folks have done prior to this," Harron said. Creating Burtons was an exciting adventure particularly because it worked. I'd like to see that happen again.

Planning Board previously approved the site for a restaurant and subsequently held public hearings on the parcel, according to Planning Director Carole Hamilton. 

Although the site is bordered by Lowell Street and West Street, the entrance to the restaurant will be on Lowell Street, according to Hamilton.
