Our roving Hyde Park reporter, Mike Ball, reports:
The door at Antonio's in Logan Square was open this morning. The overworked solo contractor (his term) was painting the door jamb (black, by the bye).
With my usual non-subtle manner I said we'd been watching the spot for a year and a half and that we were ready for it to open. He said, "We are too."
I saw that the walls were chockablock with framed posters and prints and the bar was finished and furnished.
In response to the when-will-it-open question, he said two, maybe three, weeks.
The Garufis, owners of Sophia's Grotto in Roslindale, first began working on Antonio's Bacaro in 2014. It's where the Hyde, and before that, Dottie's, used to be, on Fairmount Avenue.
