The Capital Grille of Boston, a restaurant located on Newbury Street, will open in its new space at the John B. Hynes Convention Veterans Memorial Center location on Aug. 24.
The new site on the corner of Boylston and Dalton streets is nearly double the size of the old location. With 10,000 square feet of space, the new location has a capacity for 315 people.
Features of the new location include patio seating, five private dining rooms, and a more spacious bar and lounge. Also, the restaurant will open earlier to serve lunch at 11:30 a.m.
Due to the restaurant’s larger size and longer hours, 38 new employees will join the existing staff. Plans call for the restaurant’s current location at Newbury Street to remain open until Aug. 20.
“The Capital Grille is an icon of the Boston scene, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome it to the Hynes,’’ said James Rooney, executive director of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, which operates the Hynes.
“Not only does the new restaurant offer conventioneers another convenient and quality dining option, the Capital Grille’s move to a larger location has created, and will continue to produce, more economic activity and jobs at a time when Boston needs them most,’’ he said.
