PEABODY — – Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill will open its fifth outpost at the Northshore Mall in Peabody this May.
Located at 210 Andover Street, the 7,700 square-foot venue will offer an extensive menu of American comfort food, 40 beers on tap and audiovisual experience with more than 70 high-definition TVs throughout the restaurant and patio, according to a press release.
Named in honor of Red Sox legend and North Shore native Tony Conigliaro, Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill will also feature a four-sided Jumbotron television display, large central bar and booth seating, while a private dining room offers a more intimate experience with seating for up to 38 guests.
Tony C’s will also offer new features such as communal, high-top cocktail tables alongside the bar and an 817-square- foot outdoor patio with heat lamps, fans and seating for up to 54 people.
The restaurant’s décor pays homage to Tony Conigliaro and Fenway Park through the artwork dotting the walls, but the sleek and modern interior is accentuated by a massive, illuminated marquee of Tony C’s number 25 spanning the private dining room ceiling, which serves as one of the restaurant’s most notable characteristics.
Executive Chef Steve Walsh will head up the kitchen at Tony C’s with a focus on incorporating fresh, mainly local ingredients into the menu of American comfort food and game day staples. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Cambridge. Walsh became an executive chef at age 22 and spent years with the Tavistock Restaurant Collection, formerly the Back Bay Restaurant Group, at both Joe’s American Bar & Grill and The Atlantic Fish Company before joining the Cronin Group as executive chef.
