The James Pub & Provisions is up and running and open for business in Needham as of Monday, February 5th. Located at 1027 Great Plain Avenue (where the Center Café once lived), the no-muss, no-fuss neighborhood watering hole is owned by Stuart Henry and Cormac Dowling, and the kitchen is helmed by chef Alex Horowitz. Horowitz, formerly of Blue Ginger and Tavolo, has created a menu of elevated comfort food with the occasional Irish flourish. Order a pint and a plate of fish & chips, or short rib & ale pie (you can even order a side of bubble & squeak); have a peek at the whole menu and plan your next trip to Needham. The James Pub & Provisions is open for dinner nightly starting at 4:00pm. Call 781.455.8800 for directions or to see if they have a seat for you.
