Grub Street just talked to Andy Fadous, co-owner of American Provisions, the popular new market that’s bringing gourmet, locally sourced goods to Southie. Now he’s asking neighborhood residents to attend a 6 p.m. meeting tonight at the Tynan School (650 East Fourth St. in South Boston) or to send an email with name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org to show your support for a beer and wine license. Fadous tells Grub Street that he and partner Matt Thayer want to spotlight small, New England-based breweries (Berkshire Brewing Company is a favorite) and wineries. “We feel there’s a large majority of the neighborhood who wants beer and wine, and we’re kind of the only game in town,” Fadous says. He’ll stay true to his local focus (he gets his dairy products from Thatcher Farms in Milton and cheeses from Robinson Family Farm in Hartwick). Right now, he says, cheese is the biggest seller. We think that might soon change.
