East Coast Grill’s executive chef Jason Heard is heading to Southie—and he’s bringing the bloody mary bar with him.

He’s taking over as executive chef for Coppersmith, a recently opened South Boston restaurant and bar, according to a tweet from the restaurant.

Heard, who bought the East Coast Grill in 2012, worked at the restaurant during its 30-year run until it closed its doors in January, according to Eater Boston.

Coppersmith, which has been open six months, has a 350-seat dining room with two fixed food trucks serving separate menus, a coffee bar and cafe, a patio and roofdeck, and a 100-foot bar, all housed inside a former copper foundry, according to its website.

The menus for the food trucks change with the seasons, pop up events, and holidays including St. Patrick’s Day.
