Brian Poe and Gordon Wilcox will open Poe’s Chester Square Pub in the South End, reports the Globe in a story that buries this juicy lede hilariously deep into a story about the Parish Cafe’s outdoor seating plans. Back in February, Wilcox told us that he planned to open a second Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake as well as a Mediterranean spot called Persia, but by last month, those plans were on hold. Poe’s Chester Square Pub will be located just across Tremont from the second Parish and is expected to open early next year.
