South Boston restaurant blames lazy handout-taking lardasses for its staffing shortages, not its own pay rates
Amrheins on West Broadway is blaming government handouts for how long it's taking its customers to get their food these days.
Amrheins is slated to be reborn as a much smaller cafe-style eatery when its block is turned into a life-sciences research building. In 2019, the developers planning that building paid Amrheins owner Stephen Mulrey $16.5 million for the current building and parking lot, according to Suffolk County Registry of Deeds records.
Update: Kara Baskin reports they will re-open for breakfast and lunch on Jan. 6.
Boston Restaurant Talk reports it's unclear whether this is for the winter or for good. In October, a developer filed plans to build an R&D building on the site, but keep Amrheins on the first floor, if in a smaller space.
